We visited several of the beaches on this piece of coast, or at least tried to. Beautiful as they maybe, the car parking caters for those who to spend a whole day there. One in particular, Putsborough Sands was charging £9 with a steeply banked car park and no alternative. Coupled with the amount o ftraffic wanting to use these beaches in a staycation year, we thought people were actually being quite greedy in their attitude to parking.

Don't go!! If you can get there. Traffic jams are awful!! 6 hours to travel less than 200 miles. When you get there you get stuck everywhere. Roads are not suitable for modern day lorries that people call cars. If you like reversing then fine. Local vans refused to reverse when it was a convoy of 15 cars to 2 vans. After that experience we headed to pub. Sorry not serving as only 2 staff!! Unbelievable.
Try booking a meal out. Best do that a fort night before you go. Sorry no. Sorry no.
Worst UK holiday ever. I wouldn't go back if you paid me
Shame. Beaches are beautiful. And a very helpful garage

This is a lovely area of the uk when the sun shines. A bit bleak when it’s chucking it down. Lots of great outdoor spaces for walking, surfing, picnicking and wildlife watching. You can also pay for activities if you need some entertainment such as horse riding, pottery painting, treasure hunts, coasteering and surf lessons.

We were so lucky to visit during a sunny week in April whilst it was still quite quiet. This coast is magnificent with changing views and colours that varied with different weather and different skies. This is England at it`s best.

I had never visited North Devon before and was very impressed by the unspoilt coast line and beaches.

I have lived in North Devon for 8 years and have seen pretty much all of the beautiful beaches that this coastline has to offer, but Crow Point for me stands out from the crowd. It is a vast expanse of sand, sea, dunes and incredible views which is absolutely worth a visit with only a £2.00 fee payable at a toll for as long as you want to stay. For those who want to avoid the crowd, let their children (and dogs) roam free, this is the place to go.

We visit Croyde as often as we can to bodyboard but on our last visit sea was like a millpond so donned our walking boots rather than wetsuits. We were again blessed with gorgeous weather and set off from Croyde to Putsborough via Baggy Point. Really surprised by the amount of visitors mid October compared to last year - staycations.
Plenty of room to self distance on the path and benches scattered along the walk to rest up and enjoy the stunning views

Always enjoy visiting this part of the UK. Great contrast between rugged coast with fantastic beaches and the wilderness that is Exmoor. If you take time there are many wonderfully pubs and Barnstaple and Bideford are fascinating towns.
