“Santon sands beach”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Lovely sandy beach, waves great for surfers and beach great for families too. It has the ever necessary toilets, lovely cafe and snack bar. But thought that the parking was expensive, had to pay £5 even though we were only able to stay a few hours.

“Great clean beach.”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

A whole mile of golden sand, plenty of refuse stations and well maintained.
If this beach were in the med it would be crammed full every day.
As it is, there is always plenty of room.
Especially for early birds.
Parking is easy if a little expensive.
But overall a great day out..

“Long golden unspoilt beach.”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

Have been here many times over the years for many purposes, simple walking, swimming, playing with kites and once a land yacht. Also remember getting up to no good with a boy friend hidden high in the dunes as a mid teenager. This is a lovely beach.

“Stunning”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Driving round the headland from Croyde then catching a glimpse of Saunton Sand & Braunton Burrows must be one of the most beautiful views ever. It is absolutely stunning :) We often go to Saunton on an evening(once the car park is free!) & wander along the beach watching the surfers(mostly just bobbing about rather than actually surfing!) Always lots of dog walkers & smell of barbecues in the evening, people relaxing whilst watching the sun set over Lundy. The children love exploring the dunes(Braunton Burrows) which stretch for miles & climbing to the highest points the 360' views are amazing. Not always the cleanest place & very busy(& v expensive to park during the day at height of summer) but will never, never tire of this place it has something very special about it :)

“Worth the 2 hour road trip”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

I have just got my first surf board and wanted to test it out, Son in law suggest this beach! I have passed it many times, but never actually been to it! Beautiful sunny day, good parking, easy walk down to beach, excellent surf beach, although waves small ( that can't be helped, that's down to the weather) gave me plenty of space to practise balance. Beach itself is huge and very good facilities. Dog friendly too. Ours dogs particularly enjoyed the sand dunes!
