Discover | Croyde & Saunton

The village of Croyde and the hamlet of Saunton have both become extremely popular with surfers throughout the country and a visit to either will show you why. They have also become an ideal place for walkers wishing to explore the South West Coast Path and the surrounding North Devon area.

Croyde Beach has been awarded the Blue Flag for cleanliness. With it’s half mile of fine sands and dunes and lifeguard patrols in the summer months, it’s an ideal haven for families to relax.

Of course, it’s also become something of a surfers paradise and can boast one of the best beach breaks available in the UK. However, it’s really an ideal set for the more experienced surfer, rather than for those just starting out.

The village of Croyde is a picturesque place of shops, great places to eat and drink and charming thatched cottages. It’s also home to the OceanFest, an outdoor pursuits festival which takes place during June, attracting thousands of people to the area from all over the country.

From Putsborough you can take a walk along the cliffs and look back on the beach as the waves roll onto the shore and then continue walking along the pathway as far as Woolacombe.

The road into Saunton, from Croyde, lets you take in the magnificent view of the beach which stretches along the coast for miles. It’s well known as one of the best long board waves in England and is backed by rolling sand dunes which offer shelter to those who choose to relax and unwind or energise before hitting the waves again.
