Tides: Tide tables  (using Cromer East of England) Its best to dive here on a high slack which is 1/2 hr after high Cromer as the viz is better. 

Depth: 10m

Site entry/exit: Its 150m from the top of the concrete path down to the sand and 40m across the sand to the sea depending on the tide but it seems to be further on the way back up the path. If you have a trolly its ideal for here as its a good path down to the beach.
