Saunton Sands Beach – North Devon

Did you know that Saunton Sands beach was used in the video for one of Robbie Williams most famous songs, Angels? And that in the 80’s was also used for Pink Floyds film The Wall?

Saunton sands beach is also a Military training area (well a few times thoroughout the year anyway) due to the length being 3 miles long its is used to practice beach landings.

So despite all of this excitement Saunton Sands is a truly great beach for both the family and surfing beginners. Accessible by car in just 20minutes from your lovely base – Dune Cottages. This beach adds to the array you find in North Devon, challenging Woolacombe and Croyde for your attention. And dont worry Saunton Sands has available to you food outlets, toilets and beach shops.

Please note that the waters even in the summer months can be rather cold, so may we suggest wetsuits, and if you forget yours then do not panic at Dune Cottages we do have a select few available to borrow (If we have your size).
