You can start this walk at either the Cromer or Overstrand end, but the latter is rather more satisfactory, not least because, apart from the redoubtable Cliff Top Café, there is little to do in Overstrand
The path between the cliff top car park in Overstrand and Cromer Lighthouse is easy to follow as it threads its way between the cliff edge and the Royal Cromer Golf Club.
At one point the path joins the golf buggy driveway which is easy enough when your heading east. On the return journey the path is not waymarked, and if your not careful you can end up on the golf course.
When you reach Cromer Lighthouse, you have the option of taking some steep steps down to the beach, and after a short stretch of sand and shingle, approaching Cromer via the eastern prom.
Having been looking at the Pier all the way from Overstrand, the temptation to walk out to the end is overwhelming, in my opinion.
Unless you fancy tackling the steep steps going up, return to the lighthouse via the cliff top path, and then retrace your steps into Overstrand.
Apart from a short length of path behind the Sea Marge Hotel, there is no coastal path east of Overstrand as the cliffs are too unstable.
