The town perfectly blends wide sandy beaches on the one side and wooded land on the other, giving the town an exclusive appeal for both new and returning visitors. It is a good holiday centre for people of all ages and interests. The seafront boasts a long promenade and two piers; South Pier which is to the - err, north and Claremont Pier which is in the south - both have a wide range of amusements, cafes and bars.
Lowestoft is also one of the sea entrances to the Norfolk Broads, which are wide waterways that cut deep into the surrounding countryside. The other access point from the sea is at Great Yarmouth, which is just up the coast. Boats can be hired for the day or week to explore these waterways, which makes for a relaxing holiday - except for the odd navigational slip up caused by novice sailors, as they try to remember which side to pass other boats on! We've been there!
There are several excellent beaches at Lowestoft and also at Southwold, which is around ten miles to the south. There are a lot of outdoor activities available in the area including, windsurfing, sailing, power boating, fishing, walking and cycling.
