Welcome to Burton Cove, Caister-on-sea

Caister-on-Sea is the quintessential picturesque coastal village, where residents and visitors enjoy 15 miles of glorious golden sand, overlooked by Fastolf’s 15th century moated castle.

Stroll, Discover, Sail, Shop, Play

Adventurers can explore the pristine coastline and beautiful seaside villages by foot all the way up to Winterton-on-Sea or down to Hopton-on-Sea. Journey 3 miles south to take in the action at nearby Great Yarmouth, a renowned holiday destination for the Victorians that still offers fun and thrills for all ages. For active souls the local area boasts a wealth of sports and leisure activities, including the Marina Leisure Centre and the Great Yarmouth & Caister Golf Club.

Steeped in history

Burton Cove is named for the Charles Burton, one of the last sail powered lifeboats commissioned at Caister-on-Sea’s heroic volunteer lifeboat station (one of only three independent stations in the whole of the UK). And there’s plenty more history to celebrate, dating from the Castra Roman fort, to the origins of Shakespeare’s infamous Falstaff at Caister Castle.

A place to recharge

Meandering along winding coastal walks, through sandy dunes and with the sounds of waves crashing all around you, Caister-on-Sea offers a true escape from the bustle of the 21st century

Magical East Anglia
