Trimingham has a secluded beach that is popular with surfers, jet skiers, dog walkers and night-fishermen. It is reached by a steep one-vehicle only road accessed via a lane just past the building that used to be the Ingleside public house which is now a private residence.
The cliff face at Trimingham has the youngest chalk in the United Kingdom and it is possible to collect shells, bivalves, crinoids and oysters from here. The chalk has been prevented from washing out to sea although it remains very dirty and poorly exposed. The cliffs at Trimingham are suffering badly from coastal erosion.
