Saunton Beach, Braunton

(4.3/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
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.
