Putsborough Sands
Putsborough, Braunton, Devon EX33 - England, UK
This beach is found at the southern end of Morte Bay, a three mile stretch of sand, and is a popular spot for families and surfers. Rock pools are scattered across the beach and Baggy Point, a large national trust headland, stretches out into the Atlantic on its left side. A great alternative when Croyde Bay is busy, there is a large car park overlooking the beach, and also a cafe, shop and toilets nearby.

Woolacombe Beach

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.

Croyde Bay
Beach Road, Croyde, Braunton, Devon EX33 1NZ - England, UK
Croyde Bay is a spectacular sandy beach backed by high sand dunes, and known as one of the finest surfing beaches in North Devon. It is a great place to watch the sunset over the sea during the summer, or to take a chilly walk across the sand during the winter. There are ample facilities here, including car parks, showers, toilets, shops, and camping, all very close to the beach. It can often become crowded here, so nearby Putsborough Sands offers a great alternative.
