The AONB stretches from Kessingland in the north to Shotley Peninsula in the south, and is characterised by shingle beaches, heathland, forest, estuaries and iconic coastal towns.
26 organisations work together to care for the Suffolk Coast & Heaths AONB. This AONB Partnership is coordinated and supported by the AONB team.
