Gorgeous, relaxing place to visit. We saw lots of seals and will most definitely be returning. A quiet spot perfect for couples or families.

Visited Horsey beach yesterday with my family. The weather was lovely and there were hundreds of grey seals basking on the beach, and frolicking in the surf! We spent a happy hour watching.
