Really beautiful beach and surrounding countryside - Ilfracombe nearby is worth a visit too The Hoseasons Camp Nearby isn't worth the money - suggest you find a Hotel or a Cottage to stay in

We liked the cleanliness and they have two sections with dogs and without dogs . Plenty of room for every one there wasn't any litter . We found the food by the beach very nice and very reasonable parking isn't a problem as there are plenty of car parks to choose from and there very reasonable for the day.

Great beach for walking along. Rock Pools. Relaxing. Cafe's were quite expensive just for snacks. Not much to on an evening nor if it is raining.

Went on a warm sunny afternoon with the tide fully out. Walked out to waters edge and the view across the sands was stunning. An absolute gem of a beach on the north Devon coast and no wonder it is so popular. Had a memorable afternoon being a kid again, wading in the surf, building sand castles - just magical

A huge sandy beach that was well kept and clean. I didn't like the idea that dogs were allowed on the beach all year, although the beach was clean. Unfortunately this meant the little town was awash with dogs too!

This is a top beach! Clean sands and crystal clear water. The beach is pretty big at 3 miles long and is nicely segregated for those with dogs - part of the beach is dog free, another part is for dogs on leads only and the final part is for dogs who can run free.
