Croyde Bay Beach is situated near Braunton on the North Devon Coast. It is a sandy beach around 800m long nestled within a sheltered bay. Backed by marram-covered sand dunes, it faces the Atlantic Ocean. Rock pools form at either end. Activities include swimming, canoeing and kayaking, surfing and fishing.
The beach is said to be one of the best surfing beaches in the world. The village of Croyde itself lies within the North Devon Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is on the South West Coast Path, so walkers and hikers are also well catered for.
