A local's guide to Croyde

The surfing hotspot of Croyde, nestled on the North Devon coast, is one of the UK's most popular holiday destinations. With three beaches backed by rugged cliffs and rolling hills, this friendly village is the perfect location for a family summer holiday or for quiet couples getaways. Our local's guide explains all about this lovely location.

Best places for surfing in Devon

The South West surfing scene is often dominated by Cornwall, with big name surf resorts like Newquay and Bude stealing the limelight. But its modest neighbour, Devon, also boasts some of the best surf spots in the UK. Think glassy hollow barrels, fun beach breaks and long mellow rides.

A surfer's paradise

The pretty village of Croyde is a must-visit for surfers, those who crave a relaxed, laid-back time and for lovers of the coast.

When planning things to do in Croyde, be sure to include a visit to one of the brilliant pubs in Croyde, such as The Thatch, where local ales, ciders and a tantalising menu await. You can visit the area without having a go at surfing, and the beach is perfect for all abilities - from very beginners, who can hire their gear nearby and take lessons from Croyde Surf School, to professional surfers who visit throughout the year to take on the waves.

If you fancy seeing some of the pros in action, visit in June when the wonderful GoldCoast Oceanfest is held. Alongside expert extreme sportsmen and women, world-class musicians head to this Devon village to perform to thousands.
