On this page


Distance: 16  Miles

On this first day of the epic Beach of Dreams journey, we’ll be setting off from Lowestoft in the early morning and walking to Southwold mostly by the Suffolk Coastal Path. We’re hoping for a fantastic send off from the First Light Summer Solstice event where all 500 Beach of Dreams pennants will be installed on the beach.

To all walkers:
There are two official meeting locations per day, one is at the start and the other is near the walk mid-point. Please arrive 20 minutes beforehand to avoid delaying the walk departure.

If you only wish to walk your one-mile stretch and walk along with the walking party as it comes through your section, please confirm this with the Project Coordinator who will be sending all walkers some detailed emails in the next few weeks. If you don’t receive any emails about the walks, please email sarah@kinetika.co.uk

Please only attend the walks if you have booked.


Please arrive 20 minutes beforehand.

  • Start point 12:00PM: Miles 1 – 6 Ness Point – Lowestoft NR32 1XQ

Route: Walk 1

Start points of walks are shown with bouncing markers. Click a marker to reveal what mile number it is and what day of the walk it occurs on.


 Please note: The routes and mile markers were mapped in February. It is possible that some changes will be needed before the walk itself takes place, for example because of temporary path closures, weather events, and tidal conditions. If there are changes, we will walk an alternative route that is as close as possible to the planned route, and keep the mile markers as close to the originals too.  If route lines appear to stray off public rights of way, this will not happen in reality and route lines will be adjusted as more accurate information from walk leaders is provided.  ‘Miles’ at the start and end of days may be slightly more or less than one mile.
