Scolt Head Island is an offshore barrier island between Brancaster and Wells-next-the-Sea in north Norfolk. It is in the parish of Burnham Norton and is accessed by a seasonal ferry from the village of Overy Staithe. The shingle and sand island appears to have originated from a former spit extending from the coast, and longshore drift means that it is slowly moving to the west and inshore.
Excellent trip there paddle boarding
Beautiful island, but beware of tide times as easy to get caught out.
North Norfolk's very own treasure island
Perfect, just absolutely perfect
A gorgeous place for walking and for exercising the dogs!!! We even got to some seals while we were there, which really made the day even more special! The only down side is that we couldn't find a convenience store that close so next time a picnic will be taken or at least a flask of coffee! Even with the wintery weather it's a very special place to visit with so much to see if you are in to nature!
A gorgeous place in the UK and I would always highly recommend it for the best walks in East Anglia. We did not see any seals this time round but I have seen them there on a few occasions before and what a sight it is!!! Well worth the walk!!!! 😁
Not of any interest unless you are a seasoned birdwatcher or nature enthusiast. There is a local business organising boat trips to the island, but unless you take one, and still decide to visit walking across the muddy channel at the low tide, be prepared for difficult conditions. It's easy to get stuck isolated by high water. Don't go unless you know what you're doing! Tide table is a must! But if you against all odds reach the island, you'll be awarded by a pristine land, nearly untouched by human activity, ruled only by birds, and tides. The reserve is closed from 1 April until August to protect nesting terms.
