About Holme Dunes

Explore Holme Dunes National Nature Reserve - one of the north Norfolk coast’s most attractive landscapes. There are a range of coastal habitats including sand dunes, freshwater pools, grazing marsh and saltmarsh. Much of the site consists of natural habitats maintained largely by coastal processes.

Impressive numbers of migrant and wintering waders fly from the Wash to roost on the shingle bars during spring tides. Wintering wildfowl flocks use the grazing marshes and breeding birds include avocet and little tern. Over 320 different bird species have been seen at this beautiful nature reserve.

Please note that the dunes and wildlife are very susceptible to erosion and disturbance, so please follow all on-site access instructions. During busy periods in the summer visitor numbers may be limited.

No toilets on site - the nearest are found in the public beach car park by Holme Golf Course. Bird hides and board walks through the dunes. There is a small shop selling gifts and light refreshments in the visitor centre.
