Beaches in Devon

It’s no surprise Devon is a firm family favourite with two coastlines to choose from and Blue Flag beaches a plenty. Buckets and spades at the ready, surf boards by your side and tasty fish and chips for afters – holiday heaven!

Spend many a day on the beaches around Devon with a holiday or short break at one of three holiday parks; Torquay, Challaborough Bay and Ruda Holiday Park, and head back to comfortable caravan, apartment or lodge accommodation.

With such a great range of beaches in Devon – north and south, we thought we would make it easier to plan your stay with a few of our favourites…

  • Croyde Bay, North Devon – there’s lots going on along this lively beach beside Ruda Holiday Park. As families find the perfect spot beside the sand dunes and beach café, and volleyball enthusiasts take to the sandy court, the waves draw in a surfing crowd of beginners to professionals!
  • Torquay, English Riviera – you’re spoilt for choice along the 22 miles of English Riviera coastline, including
  • Torre Abbey Sands in Torquay – found to have the best sand in the UK for making sand castles!*
  • Challaborough Bay, South Devon – surfers and families head to this quiet, relatively sheltered Blue Flag beach in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It’s great for building sandcastles and exploring rock pools at low tide.
  • Saunton Sands, North Devon – this three mile stretch of sandy beach is backed by the impressive sand dunes of Braunton Burrows and is a great day out for surf, sunbathing, relaxing strolls – or all three!
  • Bigbury-On-Sea, South Devon – its golden sands are popular with kite surfers against a back drop of Burgh Island, which is accessible at low tide or via the popular sea tractor.

Just check availability in 2012 on the dates you’re looking to get away and book today! And… If you’ve visited any of the beaches in Devon why not submit your own review?
