Suffolk Area of Natural Beauty

An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) is a nationally designated important landscape cared for by a Partnership, a team and the thousands of people who live in, work in and visit it.


Coast & Heaths was designated in 1970 with the purpose of conserving and enhancing the habitats and biodiversity of the special heathlands, woodlands, estuaries and coast.


The Partnership and team provide a lead on key issues that affect its future, supporting and facilitating the work of others.


This special designation covers 441 square kilometres. It is a diverse and ever changing landscape. You can enjoy a low-lying coast of shingle and sand, ancient woodland, forest, lowland heaths, farmland, valley meadowlands, estuaries, marshes, and historic towns and villages.
