North Devon: Description

North Devon is an ideal family holiday destination with beautiful beaches and great surf. Surrounding Croyde are 7 miles of sandy beaches including those at:

Saunton
Saunton Beach is two miles or more long and starts below the famous Sands Hotel. It goes right round to Crow Point and back over the nature reserve to Braunton. To get to the beach, travelling from Croyde, just after Saunton Sands Hotel turn right off the main road and down towards the dunes, park just by the beach for £3-6 depending on the time of year.

Woolacombe
Woolacombe Beach is more than two miles of golden sand backed by sandy hills and the Woolacombe Downs. The village of Woolacombe lies at the northern end of the beach. Speed boats and jet skis are prohibited, therefore offering superb facilities for swimming, surfing, windsurfing, sailing and sea canoeing. To get to the beach, take the A361 Ilfracombe road from Barnstaple and turn left at Mullacott Cross roundabout on to the B3343 for Woolacombe.
