Croyde Beach

Croyde is perhaps Devon's best known surfing beach and for good reason. Facing almost due west the beach picks up a good deal of swell and combined with quality sand banks makes for one of the UK's best surf beaches. Its also reknown for packing a fair bit of power, particularly on the low tide when barrels are not uncommon.

Croyde is a popular resort village with the beach being its main asset, as a result it can get a little crowded at the height of the holiday season.The beach itself is a pretty stretch of sand backing on to sand dunes and is about a half mile walk from the village. To the north it is bordered by the unspoilt red rock headland of Baggy Point
