Croyde Beach

Croyde

One of the most popular beaches in North Devon, for surfers and holidaymakers alike, and no wonder – spread behind the sand dunes is this splendid deep beach enclosed within headlands. Lifeguards patrol daily from May to September – rips are bad at low tide – and stake out the safest swimming areas. The closest car park is off Moor Lane. Be warned, this is not a quiet hideaway and attracts quite a crowd through all of summer, but if your focus is getting out into the waves it remains a top choice.
