Sailing, Swimming and Watersports in West Norfolk

Water sports of all types is prevalent on Norfolk's coastline. 

The West Norfolk coast provides excellent conditions for sailing, kite surfing, windsurfing, waterskiing or canoeing.  Alternatively just sit back and enjoy the spectacle as people enjoy this vast water sports playground. 

Due to the flat, shallow water and large open beaches, Hunstanton Beach is considered one of the best beaches on which to learn kite surfing.  At low tide the water becomes flat and shallow but gets a little choppy as the tide comes in.  The most favoured conditions here are at low tide when the sandbar emerges on the outside and the water is flat.

Sailing Clubs are well supported in the local area and often have a full and varied yacht racing calendar through the year.

Why not take the plunge and visit the Oasis Sports and Leisure Centre in Hunstanton? Located on the town’s seafront promenade, the Oasis is the perfect location for a family day out, regardless of age or sporting ability.A visit to the Oasis would not be complete without a dip in the warm waters of our 25m leisure pool.  From the twists and turns of the 33m aqua slide to bubbling waters of our poolside spa sunshine and laughter is guaranteed all-year round in our tropical paradise.
