A Norfolk beach has been named among the best to visit in the UK in a new list, featuring alongside Cornish coves and Welsh bays.

Old Hunstanton Beach has made the top 50 in the Daily Mail's list, released just in time for the start of the summer holidays.

It said: "Here we reveal 50 spellbinding beaches found around the UK's spectacular coastline.

"From English tracts of sand that look like they belong in the Maldives to Scottish sands that spellbind in equal measure."

Old Hunstanton, which is a sandy beach, is the only location in Norfolk to feature in the round-up.

The listing includes reviews from Tripadvisor, where it holds 4.5 stars out of five, and it is described by one user as "lovely and clean".

Visitors are urged to look out for "the amazing striated rock colours in the cliff wall and the shipwreck [above] that you can get close to at low tide."

Old Hunstanton is just around the corner from the seaside town of Hunstanton, home to amusements and more, and the former is quieter and backed by dunes with beach huts.
