Sea Palling was recommended to me and it does look lovely on Google but then I saw Winterton and thought that looked even nicer - hard to tell though. Does Sea Palling look like a 'normal' beach - from the pics I saw, ther are lots of rock-barrier-thingies out at sea - it is still sand and sea, yes?!
Sorry for delay in replying, ragged. Sea Palling just felt a bit... artificial and surreal. Those giant rock things were odd. Winterton beach was lovely - very windswept and natural-looking. There is a brilliant little trench of sea-water that's great for small kids to play in. I woudln't let them in the sea itself, that's the only bad bit about it - too rough and too many strong currents. The best bit was the seal colony that live there - we saw loads of little seal heads popping up out of the water!
