Season: summer

Croyde is best know as a surfing beach, facing west to attract the Atlantic breakers.  However, it has rock pools and a dune system, so there’s an all round family appeal here.  There’s a cafe and beach shop to hand and access is good, by a path or via steps at the southern end of the beach.  So if it’s swimming, surfing or sunbathing that you’re after, this is an ideal location.  Highly recommended.

One thought on “Croyde beach

    Being on a beach by the ocean means being part of nature’s force. The salty air, the light, the vastness of the open sky and the feel of the cool water as you dive through the waves and swim out invigorates us all…from the youngest to the oldest.   Combine all those wonderful elements with a place we are lucky to call home and Croyde means the best place to be, whatever the season. When new visitors book into our B&B or beach cottages, and take their first stroll on the beach, they soon fall under Croyde’ s magic spell.
