Grab your surfboard and prepare to hang ten at Saunton Beach, located in an area known for its remarkable sand dunes. Part of a UNESCO biosphere reserve, the beach includes a military training area at one end, which is occasionally cordoned off and used as an airstrip for practice. The beach's long stretch of sand makes it a popular family vacation destination, featuring a small cafe and an outlet offering surf lessons and surfboards for rent.

  • A well positioned shop with prices that are ... expected for this type of shop, nothing too bad but certainly not discount prices! However, they have everything that you need at the beach and are very professional.
  • Lovely huge sandy beach, shop and cafe, toilets and showers. What more can you ask for?
  • Well located beach shop for Saunton Sands, well stocked and not overpriced. We found it reasonable for a beach umbrella purchase and a wake board and adult wetsuit. Nice place. Cafe there too was reasonable. Beach is beautiful.
  • Nice staff, nice place, 5 stars!
  • Great place to go if you have a dog and the beach is really nice with some great rock pools would go here again👍
