Local attractions

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, 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?).
