Croyde beach is set in a wide sandy bay between Woolacombe and Saunton Sands beaches. Despite being a little tricky to find and in a rural setting Croyde is one of North Devon’s most popular beaches – and with good reason. Not only is this one of the prettiest spots along the coast it also has the best surf. Croyde bay sits between two headlands, which offer some protection from the wind. To the rear are sand dunes, and beyond, the rolling green hills of the Devon countryside.

Baggy Point is a craggy headland at Croyde with crashing waves and dramatic cliffs. It has stunning coastal views, great walks along the South West Coast Path and opportunities to climb, surf and coasteer. It’s a must-do destination for anyone visiting North Devon. Baggy’s easy access path gives people of all ages and abilities the chance to get out on a rugged headland to enjoy the far reaching views. 


The Thatch is a great pub serving delicious food. Try the New Coast Kitchen for a modern menu produced with fresh, locally sourced ingredients, full of unique flavour combinations, or Café Croyde Bay up at Baggy Point for spectacular cliff top views.
