Great beach, dog friendly off season but can walk through the dunes during the summer. Good surf and lifeguards on duty. Had beach volleyball, parking and cafe. Is a small beach so can get busy if the weather is nice!

Lovely beach and definitely worth a visit. We went when it was a bit rainy so I imagine it's much nicer on a sunny day too. The beach is one of the softest sand I've seen/felt, it was great. There's a few cafes down there too plus toilets and outdoor shower areas. The car park we parked in was a bit confusing however as it didn't state that we should pay on arrival and rather said "pay before exiting the car park" which we interpreted as pay before leaving croyde Bay altogether so don't get caught out like we did by the poor signage.

We absolutely adore Croyde. It's somewhere I have been coming to since I was a child and have so many fond memories here.

Huge beach, very clean. Lifeguards are very aware of currents and keep you safe.

A fantastic, clean and beautiful beach set on the North Devon coastline. Its rub by Parkdean who also own the Ruda holiday park complex just behind the beach and is a great place for surfers and swimmers alike.
