Local beaches

Croyde Bay

A surfers paradise, famous as one of the best surfing beaches in the UK and the venue for the British Surfing Championships. On large swells when the waves increase in size the skills of local surfers can provide an action packed spectacle. Croyde is also a golden sandy beach and being nestled between two headlands Down End & Baggy Point the beach is also sheltered with many rock pools to explore.


Beach

Saunton Sands

A four mile long expanse of sandy, beach facing due west backed by impressive sand dunes and cut off to the south by the combined estuaries of the rivers Taw and Torridge. This is a popular beach with surfers and ideal for families.


Woolacombe Bay

One of the finest beaches in the West Country with numerous awards. It's a big favorite for families and surfers, attracting thousands of people each summer. The rolling surf brings unbroken Atlantic breakers from across thousands of miles of ocean to pound on this three-mile long stretch of golden sand.


Putsborough Sands

Its vast expanse of golden sand that forms the southern section of Woolacombe Bay. Popular with surfers, especially longboarders, Putsborough is the only beach in the area to have some protection from south and south-westerly winds, thanks to a headland known as Baggy Point. Plenty of parking and easy access via a sloping path.
