Saunton Sands is a most impressive beach with a huge expanse of flat sand stretching for 3 miles. The sand dunes behind are much enjoyed by children and provide sheltered spots for sun bathers. It is also an excellent surfing beach and ideal for all water sports.
During the main holiday season the beach is patrolled by life guards and then there are areas designated for bathing. The facilities are all near the car park end but to get away from the crowds just walk further down the beach. It is wheelchair accessible but access is difficult.
