The Beach
If you don’t live near the sea then it is easy to forget that beach and surf life is driven by the tide times and the conditions! You will find a tide time booklet in the property to help you plan your days, and you can also find the times using this website https://magicseaweed.com/Croyde-Beach-Surf-Report/7/Tide/ There is a small shop and cafe at Croyde Beach and it is only a short walk to the village, or one of the Campsites where you can buy provisions, drinks and ice creams and of course buckets and spades! Parking is available near the beach for a daily fee. This can be accessed either at Down End car park, from here it is steep walk onto the beach. Alternatively there is beach parking at the end of Moor Lane where access to the beach is gentler. There is lots on offer at Croyde Beach, dunes to explore, rockpooling, surfing (see our Surfing guidebook) and beach volley ball to name a few. This is a lifeguarded beach and we urge you to take notice of the safety signs at the beach entrances, so you can focus on having fun safely.

Swimming Pool - If the sea is a little bit rough (or too cold) and you fancy a warmer water experience, then Cascades at Ruda Holiday Park is what you need. It is open to non-residents as are many of the other facilities on the site.

Beach Clean – if you fancy something a little bit different, and want to do your bit for the environment then there are regular beach cleans on the local beaches. These are a great opportunity to meet local people who love and care for their environment, and who would be very happy to welcome you to an organised event. Information on local beach cleans can be found on https://www.northdevon-aonb.org.uk/beach-clean-diary. Or you can organise your own mini beach clean using the bags and pickers that are provided at the beach entrances in Croyde and Saunton Sands. It’s a great way to keep kids entertained when sandcastles have lost their sparkle!
