A stunning, un-spoilt east coast seaside village, with its roots in fishing. The wide and impressive sandy beach is backed by superb sand-dunes. The sand dunes are nature reserve classified as an area of outstanding natural beauty and is ideal for bird watchers and walkers. Just north of Winterton a colony of grey seals live and can be regularly seen basking on the beach or popping their heads above the waves. The village has a large church and has one of the first UK windfarms on the ridge to the west of the village.
There is an immense car-park adjacent to the beach (£5 all day or £1 per hour). You can either walk along the beach itself or along the top of the sand-dunes. An excellent cafe is adjacent to the carpark and serves a wide range of refreshments. From the beach you get good views of the offshore windfarm and the sand dunes right along this stretch of coast. There are also two fabulous places to eat a short walk from the beach and into the village, the Winterton fish bar and Fishermans return.
