North Devon Beaches

North Devon is a great place to visit with some great scenery and some good beaches, including some excellent surfing beaches. There are some nice towns and villages to visit too, including the picturesque fishing village of Clovelly.

North Devon is divided into two by the estuaries of the River Taw and River Torridge. On the banks of the River Torridge is the pleasant village of Instow with its sandy beach, looking across to Appledore, a town well worth a visit.

Below the estuary is the huge surfing beach at Westward Ho! Further west is Clovelly and the headland at Hartland Point. Further south is a small beach at Hartland Quay.

North of the River Taw and Torridge are the big surfing beaches at Saunton Sands, Croyde Bay, Putsborough and Woolacombe. From Woolacombe there is good walking around Morte Point and Bull Point. On this part of the coast there are beaches at Rockham Beach and further west
Lee Bay.

Further west on the coast is Ilfracombe and the beach at Hele Bay. Further west again is the town of Combe Martin and Wild Pear Beach.

At the far east of the North Devon coast is the town of Lynmouth, which is well worth a visit for the secenery and there are long pebble beaches here.

There are a number of routes into North Devon including the A39 North Atlantic Highway from Bude and the A377 from Exeter.
