Devon - Croyde Bay

Surf your heart out at this beautiful beach

Between Baggy Point and Down End, Croyde is 34 miles long and sits on the coast of North Devon.

The surfing conditions here produce a very fast wave, so it's great for short boarder’s and and the Atlantic swell brings big waves almost every day. It's best ridden at low tide, when you'll get a great thrill ride when the waves barrel on a good day. Be warned though, this one is not for the novice surfer - there are some serious rips.

It should come as no surprise that Croyde attracts numerous annual surf competitions: The Goldcoast Oceanfest, the Jesus Surf Classic, and the Saltrock Open.

From Easter to October, RNLI lifeguards patrol the beach.
