California, UK-style

Don't be fooled by the name – California, Great Yarmouth, isn't the sun-splashed Pacific. It's more blustery North Sea, wide sands and leafy English countryside. It's also more family break hotspot, what with those homey California holiday rentals, thatched cottages and campsites overlooking the beaches. Summertime is high time, when you'll never be short of towel space on the Norfolk coast. Rainy days can be filled with trips to the buzzing arcades and miniature golf courses of Great Yarmouth, or encounters with the sharks and rays of the SEA LIFE centre.

Things to do

Diving into the California seas

Make the most of the proximity of California holiday rentals and the town of Great Yarmouth. Packed with entertainments – seaside games rooms, arcades, swimming pools – of all sorts, it's a great place to while away rainy days on the Norfolk coast. One of the main attractions is surely the SEA LIFE aquarium. That's got reef sharks from the tropics and starfish from the Channel, snapping crocs and turtles. There are also rockpool adventures for the kids and play areas with swashbuckling pirate ships.

Activities

Calling castle builders to California

California enjoys a perch above one of the most accessible but untouched stretches of Norfolk beachfront. Long and sandy, it runs for miles and miles, offering plenty of opportunities to swim and sunbathe. Summer sees families sprawled close to the shore and master sandcastle builders working their magic. The nearby beach at Scratby also has waves for budding surfers, while Great Yarmouth is home to neon-lit gaming arcades, bustling seaside promenades and fairgrounds filled with carousels and twirling rides.

Weather

Wait for the sun in California

Just like California on the other side of the pond, this California is best when the sun shines. That's when the caravan parks and the California holiday rentals fill to bursting with bucket-and-spade-touting beach lovers eager to hit the sands. The months of July and August are always the most popular, mainly due to the UK school breaks. That said, you can look forward to swim-worthy weather in months like May, July and September, too.

Natural features

Norfolk seas in California

Pack the swimwear and beach balls for that jaunt to California, because this leafy town on the Norfolk coast is famed for its long and wide stretch of pristine sand. It comes into its own in the summer, when tanning bodies pepper its whole length from the waves of Scratby to the dunes of Hemsby Beach. Inland is where you can visit the famous Norfolk Broads. Rivers and lakes and waterways of all sorts abound there, interspersed with marshes and wetlands. It's a fine habitat for spotting rare butterflies, water boatmen and seabirds.
