Surfer's Paradise CampsiteFavourite
60 seconds. That's all it takes to reach the water from Surfer's Paradise. You can literally roll out of bed, zip up the wetsuit, and hit the surf in about a minute.
Croyde Bay's a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in north Devon, one of Britain's best breaks and has recently been awarded the Blue Flag beach award. Croyde Bay is home to some of the best surfing this side of the Atlantic. Mind you, it's not just great for surfing. It's also pretty good for beach volleyball and just chilling out.
And guess what? It's just over the dunes whenever you camp at Surfer's Paradise. The clear waters and golden sands of Croyde Bay keep surfers from around the world coming back to stay at our campsite on Britain's Gold Coast.
Nearby attractions and activities
Don’t miss the chance to explore the glorious Devon coastline surrounding Surfer's Paradise. Recommendations include a walk to the headland at Baggy Point, where you’ll be rewarded with outstanding views, a saunter along spectacular Saunton Sands, and a delve into the imposing dunes at Braunton Burrows.
Croyde itself is a perfectly pretty village of thatched cottages, tea rooms, pubs, restaurants and cafés - and, of course, surf shops.
There are umpteen visitor attractions in the area, particularly for animal enthusiasts, who can come face to face with life-sized model dinosaurs and a host of their living, breathing descendants at Combe Martin Wildlife Park; practise their trout pouts on some fishy friends at Ilfracombe’s aquarium; or get hands on with the animals at the Big Sheep, the area’s most eccentric - but fun - day out (sheep racing and stunt ducks, anyone?).

A fantastically well placed campsite, just a few minutes walk to the beach. Basic facilities and friendly staff on site.
Jessica P. (Young couple, 1 review, 0 photos) Confirmed ?
Liked: Being so close to the beach - only 3 or 4 minutes walk along a very well kept pathway through the dunes and you were on the beach.
Disliked: The toilets, although modern and reasonably tidy, were not cleaned every day, nor the paper towels/toilet roll replenished every day. Reported a problem with a tap that wouldn't turn off in the early evening and it remained running until the morning when I had to ask again for it to be fixed.
