There are some beautiful beaches to visit during a beach holiday in Westward Ho!, and one of the most scenic is nearby Appledore Beach. Perched beside the meeting point of the River Taw and the River Torridge, Appledore Beach is a great spot for a stroll, or to sit for awhile and admire the views of this once-bustling maritime village.
Appledore is one of those resorts where narrow lanes wind their way to the water, coloured fishing boats sit patiently on the water and pretty cottages line the streets. The village once relied on the catches of the fishermen, so there's a historic feel to the area and it's ideal for a quiet afternoon looking around.
One of the highlights of a visit to Appledore Beach is its views across the water to the neighbouring village of Instow, and the South West Coast Path runs nearby too. If you find yourselves wanting a stroll on the sand away from the crowds and activity during a beach holiday in Westward Ho! head for Appledore.
