  • It is easy to see why this beach is so popular with families and surfers. Clean, safe, beautiful, and plenty to do in and out of the water. Decent selection of family friendly places to eat and drink ...  more »
  • One if the best beaches ive visited in England... if you visit north Devon then do visit the area and dont forget ti pop down to the Red Barn besides the beach 
  • Very clean beach, lovely and sandy. Lots of life guards. Beware, tide comes in very quickly. Places to hire wind breakers and beach chairs
