I haven't been to this area for 25 years but it hasn't failed to deliver. A lovely clean wide beach with the right level of surf so everyone can enjoy. My boys and I have loved several days here and will be coming back.

A lovely beach in a sheltered cove. Very popular with surfers and body borders. Croyde is not the easiest place to drive through in the middle of the holiday season, but worth the effort. Parking expensive with £7 a day being the average. Fine if...More

Path that could be walked , jogged or cycled. Great views to Croyde beach and the headland beyond. From Croydon - it's a 5 mile jog to go around it and back.

Visited a couple of times and couldn’t believe england could be so beautiful. Clean beach that’s great for bodyboarding or surfing and lifeguards around, with some really nice places to eat and go for walks. Already planning to go back!

Great clean beach with perfect waves for bodyboarding and surfing. Lots of sand for building sand castles and rock pools for exploring. Lifeguards watch the beach. The waves can get crowded with bodyboarders but still great fun. Croyde has some good varied eateries from the...More

Spent a lot of time here over the years surfing 🏄‍♀️ and chilling with friends and love this beach. However there have been massive housing developments which makes this place really busy. When the swell is right it has a really clean powerful wave which...More

It's bad enough out of season, I would first ask who you're renting from. Then I would try the local tourist information as I know they do weekly passes, then you can park at any car park your permit allows when you out and... More
