Attraction Information

Dunwich Heath Coastal Centre and Beach is tucked away on the Suffolk coast, Dunwich Heath offers you peace and quiet and a true sense of being at one with nature.

A rare and precious habitat, the heath is home to special species such as the Dartford warbler, nightjar, woodlark, ant lion, adder and much more. Quiet and serene, wild and dramatic, this is an inspiring visit, whatever the time of year.

From July to September, the heath is alive with colour; a patchwork of pink and purple heather and coconut scented yellow gorse is an unmissable experience.
