Seals can be seen at this beach all year round. During the time that they are having their pups December to February, the beach can have up to 8,000 seals there. At that time, you can only go on the top of the sand dunes because if people get too close, the mothers will abandon their pups.
We went in April and there were still 350 around.
Do not take your dogs here and if you do, keep them on the lead.
The seal warden also said that people had asked him how to make the seals stay still so they could put their child on them for a picture. These are wild animals and should be treated as such. You should stay 3 metres (9 feet) away from them.

The Horsey Windpump is a National Trust property and on the way to Horsey Beach. It was used to pump the water away to enable the farming to happen in the local area.
It is a great place to stop for a picnic and free for NT members.
