Season: summer

Saunton Sands is a west facing surfing beach, just below Croyde and almost three miles in length.  It’s in a stunning location, with the Braunton Burrows reserve immediately behind the beach. There are toilets and parking to hand, excellent coastal walks and attractive villages nearby,  Care is needed when swimming, due to rip tides and a lack of lifeguards.  This beach has an unspoilt atmosphere.  Highly recommended.

    At every opportunity I head to the beach! We have a motorhome called Calamity and a dog called Charliechops and have found some superb beaches We went to Braunton in north Devon in June and discovered Saunton Sands beach, which is dog friendly and a fantastic space to walk for miles, grabbing a coffee and a bite at the beach cafe at the end of it! Perfect.
