The village is situated on the coast road east of Overstrand between Cromer and Mundesley.
The section of cliffs at Sidestrand is one of the wildest parts of the Norfolk coast due to its rapid erosion. It's beaches and dramatic cliffs are less easy to reach than most others along this part of the coastline. The 50m high cliffs contain spectacular glacial sediments and structures and its beach is a rich picking ground for Petrologists and fossil hunters.
