Saunton Sands Beach
In 1943–44, over 10,000 American GIs descended on the village of Braunton and trained for the D-Day landings amongst the dunes of Saunton Beach…
Now Saunton Sands plays host to some of the best surf in the country – when the conditions are right!
There are long stretches of water which are perfect for swimmers and surfers and is more suited to beginners and intermediate surfers than the northern Croyde Bay.
Robbie Williams is a fan of Saunton Sands using it for his ‘Angels’ video.
There are a range of food outlets, toilets and beach shops with easy disabled access. Saunton is currently the only beach in North Devon to have a Landeez all terrain wheelchair. This wheelchair will allow those who are less abled or disabled to have full enjoyment of the beach as it is able to traverse all areas and to be used in the shallows of the sea.
Dogs are allowed on the beach all year. You can take a refreshing walk to Crow Point which will provide some amazing views across the coastline.
