|Council:||King's Lynn and West Norfolk|
|North West Norfolk|
The civil parish has an area of 3.4 sq mile (8.8 km²) and in the 2001 had a population of 322 in 177 households.
Its position on the North Sea coast makes Cley a prime site for migratory birds in autumn. It consequently is home to two adjoining nature reserves, one owned by the Norfolk Wildlife Trust and the other by the Norfolk Ornithological Association. A pair of black-winged stilts bred at the Wildlife Trust's Holme Dunes  in 1987, is raising three young.
The eastern end of Hunstanton golf links reach to Holme, and public rights of way mean that birders and golfers have learned to co-exist, the golfers twitchy and the twitchers distracted by birdies.
It is the nearest village to the Bronze Age timber circle site of Seahenge.
