Croyde and North Devon have so much stunning scenery, from beautiful beaches to coastal cliff faces, there is always a good opportunity for a photo. We’ve highlighted some of our favourite Croyde Bay beach photography and North Devon beach photography too.
CROYDE BEACH PHOTOGRAPHY
Naturally our favourite beach ever and just over the sand dunes from the resort, Croyde Beach is regularly voted one of the best in the country. Of course, it is gorgeous at any time of the day. Early morning in the first picture shot at low tide, during a clear day when you can see Lundy Island off the coast. Or around dusk and one of the many beautiful Croyde Bay sunsets we get!
From the resort you can make the short walk to the location in the below image by turning right out of the main entrance, walking along the pavement and down to the beach steps or benches along the coast path. An undoubtedly perfect spot for watching the sun go down.
Lundy Island is also located off the North Devon coast, the cliff faces can be seen vividly on a clear day. Additionally, you can even day trip to the island from the neighbouring town of Ilfracombe.
There is not only Croyde Beach you can visit whilst staying at Croyde Bay Resort but also many of Devon’s best beaches located nearby too. Saunton Sands, featured in the first picture here, is a huge beach perfect for learning to surf or taking a long walk. The third image features Woolacombe Beach which is consistently voted the best beach in the UK and has recently featured in TripAdvisor’s top 20 beaches in the world.
Whether it’s the natural beauty of coastal formations near Hartland, the old fisherman’s village of Clovelly or the unique pebble ridge in Westward Ho!. There is without a doubt plenty of beautiful photography spots around the North Devon coast.
Hartland is notably one of the quieter villages in the area, but still plenty of reasons to visit including its old-time feel and the stunning surrounding scenery. For example, the incredible Black Church Rock pictured in the first photograph below.
Croyde is blessed with some of the best sunsets in the country, perfect of course for snapping a photo at golden hour. From wherever you watch the sunset over the Atlantic, you’re sure to get a good view and photo opportunity.
