“Fantastic beach”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

This beach is very well looked after, clean and even has a new toilet block. Shower for after surfing, beach cafe with nachos and dressed crab, a dog-free area ...there's really not much missing from the beach except a lot of sunny days.

“Fabulous beach and facilities”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

We stay here in our caravan every year because it is so beautiful. The car park is no more expensive than that of its neighbours. The old car park toilets compared favourably with that of neighbours and was always clean. ( MUCH better than the horrible Woolacombe unisex toilets!) there is a good beach cafe /shop. However, this year there are brand new toilet facilities which beat anything else locally hands down.
Putsborough is a stunning beach, which us much less crowded than Croyde and a Woolacombe. Don't be put off by the previous review,s/he must have been on grumpy pills!

“Jaw dropping view”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

I have been visiting Putsborough Sands almost yearly since the 1960s. The whole of North Devon never fails to excite me, the view as you turn down to approach the beach car park is by far the best. It fills me with such excitement, I in fact feel quite emotional when I see the amazing view looking all the way along Morte Bay, come rain or shine.
As the website motto says, a little piece of paradise, and my goodness you can't get much better than this. I have incredible memories from the past 50 years and I'm looking forward to many more years of holidaying in Devon and especially Putsborough Sands.

“Fantastic beach”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

This is a fabulous beach and well worth tackling the narrow roads to get to it. We got there early, in fact one of the 1st on the beach and were one of the last to leave. Immaculate toilets, great shop and cafe. Just a little cramped when the tide comes in on a busy day.
