 Devon North

UK

North Devon surfing is centred around the Barnstable-Croyde area. However, some of the best spots are found outside of this limited region, with sheltered bays providing surprising variety of surfing. Due to the local geology, rock-reefs are found as well as point-breaks and beack breaks. The beach breaks are very affected by the tides, and at weekends the line-ups can get very crowded.

travellingwilberry - yes devon might rely on tourism at the moment.....if londoners stay away, house prices will fall and local people will stay, numbers of children in schools will rise instead of closing down and local communities will grow encouraging employment not dependant on tourism. It is second home owners/city dwellers that change the dynamics of such areas

Croyde vs Woolacombe - Hi - we have a surf crew heading down to either Croyde or Woolacombe for a long weekend - wanted to know where people recommended we stay in terms of where was best for the night life - we have a couple of jeeps so driving to the beaches ain't so much a thing - just want to make sure we're staying somewhere within walking distance of some nice, chilled, pubs?

Surfing in Devon! - Our son tells us that surfing in Devon is quite underated! So sometimes we take spontaneous Midweek Breaks Devon and whilst he is enjoying the waves and usually wiping out in Lynmouth, we find ourselves going back to a nearby hotel that overlooks the town called Highcliffe House.
