One single minute. Yup, just 60 seconds. That’s all the time it takes to get to the beach from the splendid setting of Surfer's Paradise Campsite, on a green meadow a teeny distance from the coast in the Devon village of Croyde.
Croyde is, of course, rightly famed as a surfing hotspot, so before you dash straight off to the beach (as enticing as its sands may be), you’d do well to wriggle into a wetsuit and grab a board for hitting the waves. Those who are new to all this can hire kit from the surf shop on site and find plenty of experts locally for a lesson or few.
Not in the mood to encase yourself in neoprene? The sands are equally excellent for beach volleyball, sea-view walks, picnics or just a bit of chilling out, and there are umpteen visitor attractions nearby, including a dinosaur park, an animal park, an aquarium and sheep racing (but of course).
Picnic tables are scattered around the site for those who’d like to do seaside self-catering, or it’s a 10-minute stroll to the village centre for pubs, restaurants and cafés. Toilets and hot showers are on site and guests are also welcome to use the facilities at the site’s larger sister park, a couple of minutes away on foot – a games arcade, soft play area, fishing pond and indoor pool with waterslide await over there.
Open from 31/07/2023 to 27/08/2023

Croyde’s an excellent beach, there’s no arguing with that (and home to some of the finest surfing this side of the pond) but it’s worth getting out to other corners of this coastline, as there are numerous gems to take in. Board riders may also like to take to the waves at Saunton Sands (10 minutes’ drive) while those in search of a little land-based time can scramble in the dunes at Braunton Burrows (20 minutes) or wander on the coast path to Baggy Point and beyond.
Family-friendly seaside days can be had up in Ilfracombe (25 minutes), where you can scamper underground to Tunnels Beaches, come face to face with fish life at the aquarium and board sea safaris in search of wildlife out in the waves.
Other options locally include the animated dinos and real-life beasts at Combe Martin Wildlife & Dinosaur Park (35 minutes) and steam-powered outings on the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway (45 minutes). And that sheep racing? (Go on, you know you want to…) That’s at the Big Sheep amusement park (40 minutes), also home to a big indoor playground, a collection of rides and a brewery and gin distillery to perk up the grownups.
