Croyde Bay – a mecca for surfers, year after year
North Devon’s Croyde Bay is one of the top surfing beaches on the southwest coast. Every year thousands of surfers – beginners, intermediaries and professionals – flock here to take advantage of the excellent waves and beautiful beach.
By choosing to stay at Croyde Bay Holiday Resort, you are just a few minutes walk from the surf, across the dunes to the beach and all the action. If you have transport, you will also be able to enjoy the excellent beaches and surf to be found at Saunton Sands and Putsborough, both just a 5 minute drive away.

Get coached by a former European Surf Champion
After years at the top of the competitive surfing game, former British and European Champion Sarah Whiteley decided to return to her home village of Croyde Bay in North Devon and give something back to the sport.
Chances are you could get lessons from one of Britain’s most successful female surfers.
I believe in, and take pride in, working with surfers at all levels – from first attempt to competition coaching. There’s a joy that comes from seeing someone stand up for the first time that invigorates me every time. Equally, there’s a sense of fulfilment at helping someone nail a manoeuvre that they’ve been working on for 3 months. Come and join me for some fun in the sea.
