Cley next the Sea is a quiet treasure on the North Norfolk coast. Its marshes are one of the first nature reserves in the UK and it's a haven for birdwatchers and walkers. Close to The Harnser is a beach road which winds through the reeds and the marshes down to the sea. The shingle beach is wild and beautiful, the light and colour always changing, always enchanting. Cley is close to many pretty and popular places, including: Blakeney, Holt, Salthouse. Further along the coast there's Sheringham and Cromer to the east and Wells, Holkham and the Burnhams to the west.
