One of plenty of beach communities on the UK's east coast, equidistant from both London and Birmingham (about three hours by road), Hunstanton has long relied on the British desire for a coastal holiday for its tourism numbers. At embark.org, we'd call "hunny bunny" an intriguing day trip for the international traveler as well, despite the cloyingly cute nickname.
Known for its incredible cliffs (which are striated between a dusty red and chalky white) and blue-flag beaches, it is also one of the few eastern points in England where you can catch a sunset because the town faces west over the Wash. Not only is there great swimming, sunsets, and natural formations, but you can learn to kitesurf, windsurf, and landboard in day-long training courses put together at the main beach by the Hunstanton Watersports School.
Whether you want to take it easy or build on your extreme sports acumen, the town of Hunstanton is a fine place to do it. If you're traveling in September, be sure to attend the Lifestyles Festival, an extreme sports event that brings together live music with extreme activities like skateboarding, climbing, and BMX'ing.
