After experiencing the charges at Clovelly village, encountering putsborough sands just adds to the frustration about holidaying in north Devon. To now charge £8 to park without an hourly breakdown is a disgrace. Total disgrace.... thieves is what springs to mind. It's no wonder there's...More

Good parking if not a little pricey if you don't want to stop for at least half a day. That said the parking is well organised and lots of it. The beach is approached by steps or a short walk to a slope for easier...More

A recommendation from a friend, and what a good one! This Beach stretches about 2 miles up to Woolacombe, so even on a busy weekend it didn't feel crowded. Definitely preferable for us in comparison to Woolacombe Beach. Great Beach Café, where food is cooked...More

Wow well worth the walk from Woolacombe, extensive menu from fish and chips to sandwiches and crab salad. The food comes in cartons but judging how busy it is, they need this to keep on top of things. Prices are higher end for a cafe...More

We love this place. Got to be one of the best beaches in U.K.? Weather was perfect which made it all the better and the sea wasn't as cold as expected. Got to be fairly fit as it is a bit of a climb down...More

Always immaculately clean, lovely sand, clear water, good waves, rocks on which adventurous children can climb safely (if they are careful), a busy, friendly cafe with hot and cold food, ice-creams, ample cliff-top car-parking (for which there is a charge) and a friendly welcome. What...More

Well, we moved on from the impossibly small Saunton Sands car park to Croyde, but again very busy, then heard of this turning down a Devon Lane, followed our noses, and there was this gem of a beach, some surf, broad flat sands, some rocky...More

Always walked to Puts borough but you could try parking on the cliff car park and walking through the dunes depending on your fitness level.
