Out in the waves you\u0026rsquo;ll find long slow walls making it an ideal spot for those new to surfing. Sheltered from NW-N winds, the surf is a popular choice with those who aren\u0026rsquo;t too experienced.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\u003cp\u003eThe beach rolls on for three and a half miles, and Saunton is infamous for having some of the UK\u0026rsquo;s best waves. Backing on to the Atlantic, on a day with great swell it can offer line after line of spectacular long slow rollers that lure longboarders from around the country.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\u003cp\u003eThere\u0026rsquo;s a pay car park located just behind the beach so you won\u0026rsquo;t have far to carry your board, and Saunton Sands doesn\u0026rsquo;t have the problem of space that Croyde Bay can encounter during busy times. That said, look out for kiteboarders when it\u0026rsquo;s windy as the waves prove just as popular with them on a good day. As ever, check the tide times before making your way to Saunton for a surf, especially as the water retreats a whopping 500 metres at low tide. The waves at Saunton Sands may look gentle, but prepare for a surprise once you get in!\u003c/p\u003e\r\n","AtGlance":"\u003cp\u003eBraunton, Devon, EX33 1LQ\u003c/p\u003e\r\n","Categories":[{"ParentId":null,"Id":375,"Name":"Things To Do"},{"ParentId":"375","Id":337,"Name":"Activities"},{"ParentId":"337","Id":338,"Name":"Surfing Beaches"}],"Inspirations":[],"HotPick":false,"LocationLatitude":51.1169,"LocationLongitude":-4.22163,"MainImage":"https://assets.bluechipholidays.co.uk/media/catalogs/public/downloads/preview/custom_carousel/2013/04/1364815073.jpg/carousel.jpg","LogoImage":null,"Alias":"devon/saunton-braunton/surfing-at-saunton-sands","MainImageSmall":"https://assets.bluechipholidays.co.uk/media/catalogs/public/downloads/preview/custom_1x1/2013/04/1364815073.jpg/carousel.jpg","Locations":[{"ParentId":"78","Id":127,"Name":"Saunton \u0026 Braunton","Alias":"saunton-braunton"},{"ParentId":"201","Id":78,"Name":"North Devon","Alias":"north-devon"},{"ParentId":null,"Id":201,"Name":"Devon","Alias":"devon"}]},"Distance":null},"IsDestinationPage":false}
