Heacham has historic ties to Pocahontas who married John Rolfe in 1614. Her image is depicted on the village sign. Rolfe's birthplace and family home was Heacham Hall.

The beach at Heacham is situated on the east banks of The Wash. This means it is one of the few beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over land. As such, with the right weather conditions, beautiful sunsets can be viewed.
