Super pleasant route. It's a sandy/ grassy/ dune as said below but mostly flat and also agree its a much quieter alternative to walk along the beach. I took my shoes off and walked barefoot by the seashore for some it, which was joyful. The number 8 bus from Caister to Great Yarmouth is quite frequent.

Flat route. Mixed sandy/grassy/dune towards Caister, and footpath along the promenade as you get to Yarmouth.

It's quieter to walk the route fully on the beach, but that's less accessible and there's decent public transport (bus) between start and end points if you're only walking one way.

A pleasant walk that is mostly along seaside promenades from Great Yarmouth up until the holiday park between Great Yarmouth and Caister, where the pavement ends and the path goes onto the back of the dunes, before then turning inland past the Lifeboat station. (this section prior to turning in is the most difficult part, and, as another review has mentioned, could probably be avoided by turning into the large car park first, prior to the lifeboat station. (only reason for 4* and not 5*)
The route at the Great Yarmouth end has plenty of facilities, with public toilets and a number of different cafe's to purchase food and drinks from, while Caister itself also featured a small supermarket and shops.

On a sunny day this is a really lovely walk and probably even if a little windy with the satisfaction of fighting said wind. This route is mostly on hard paths (paved, tarmac, compacted ground) but there are stretches in the dunes and the beach. At the Caister end if you cut through the car park at the beach and head to the dunes you'd avoid the loose sand and get the bits where the marram grass holds it together. This would be possible then with an all terrain type buggy. The route could also be walked mostly on the beach proper even at high tide from Caister to Britannia pier in Great Yarmouth. The slight deviation at great Yarmouth takes you onto the path between the beach and the waterways away from the road. There is a lot of space with skylarks singing and a few dog walkers. On this day the offshore wind farm appeared eerily out of the heat haze. Getting closer into great Yarmouth along the sea front there are plenty of toilets and refreshment options. In Caister if you take the route as listed the last stretch towards the beach the footpath disappeared under parked cars on both the pavement and the double yellow lines but the road is safe to use as it's a dead end with only a few houses.
