The Best Beaches in Devon

So as you may know I am currently living in Devon, England, the two coast county. It has no shortage of stunning beaches to take advantage of, and there are coastal walks for days. Some of these beaches have convinced Brits to take their holidays here instead of abroad!

So here you go, the beaches in Devon you shouldn’t miss..

Croyde Beah ↠ A known surfing destination and a perfect size beach for family fun. This is my home beach!

Woolacombe ↠ A long sandy beach with pubs a stone’s throw away. It’s great to enjoy your day on the beach then head for a pint and some live music.

Barricane beach ↠ Intimate and tucked away in rock formation, it gives you the feeling that you’re far away on a secluded beach. There’s also a café which serves authentic curries in the evening. Get there early or they may sell out!

Tunnels ↠ To get to this secluded beach you must make your way through the rock tunnel passage. It’s small but picturesque. Just be sure to check it’s not closed for an event.

Saunton ↠ Great for a long walk then a long chill out on the beach. A great choice for beginner surfers.

Woody Bay ↠ If you’re looking for something a bit more secluded look no further. It’s a nice trek down to this rocky beach. Stay in the Woody Bay Hotel for a perfect overnight escape.

Sandy Bay ↠ A stunning beach surrounded by cliffs. It’s only 14 miles from Exeter which makes it convenient from the city.

North Sands Salcombe ↠ A relatively built up coastal resort town so lots on offer. The North Beach is a short walk from the town.

Bantham ↠ Another beautiful surfing beach. If you get hungry you can pop up to the car park and get something from the Gastrobus food truck. They use local Devon produce to make tasty breakfast and burgers.

Can you think of any top beaches I haven’t mentioned? Let me know!
