A lovely place to take your dog or children to. Plenty to keep both amused and wide open spaces on the beach. Accessed by a toll road (£2.50) with a electronic barrier with quite a few speed bumps and passing places before you reach the large parking area which is gravel and can be a bit muddy after prolonged rain. Parts of the area are Army training grounds but are still accessible. There are expansive views up river to Barnstaple and across to Instow and Appledore and out to sea. No toilets or places to get refreshments so you’ll need to make sure you have everything you need for the day. There’s a lot of driftwood on the beach for children to make camps and shelters and the odd shipwreck to play with. On a warm summer’s day it’s a lovely place to spend some time walking in the dunes but be aware that there are Adders and it’s best to keep your pet close by as it’s a slow drive to the nearest vet in Braunton.

Stunning place to visit. Feels like you are somewhere exotic. The wind blows a lot of sand around, so take your sunglasses to protect your eyes on windy days. Genuinely beautiful spot though, and fairly quiet due to the toll road that is needed to access it by vehicle. You could walk there from other roads, but it's a lengthy stroll. The car park is free, so you only need to pay £2.50 for the toll road to access one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in Britain.

Crow point is a lovely stretch of coastline. There's a toll road that you need £2 in coins. The car park is a bit rough but right next to the beach and dunes. You can see across the estuary to Appledore and its a great spot for watersports as well as a family day out, although im not sure the water is good enough for swimming in. Dogs are allowed all year. You can walk to saunton beach, about 3 and a half miles. It's just beautiful.

Great place to work along the beach. Don't try and cross to either Instow or Appledore at low tide, you will not make it and will appear on Saving lives at sea tv program.. Lovely place to relax and unwind mind you
