“Car Parking Charges at Saunton Sands Beach”
Reviewed 24 July 2012

I cannot agree more with all the wonderful comments about Saunton Beach itself, I have lived here most of my life and it is one of ther best beaches for sand and surf in the area.

I cannot comment so favourably on the car park charges for this beach though. Only today at 3.30pm I thought I would just take the trip in my car to the beach with my young niece for a treat; when we got down to the toll booth, the young lady there wanted to charge me £7.00 for the rest of the day's sun, sea and sand. This is probally the most I have ever known this beach carpark to charge in the hieght of the season. It has always been known as one of the highest Beach Car Parking charges in the area and quite frankly it is now just greed by the private land owners of the carpark. Very poor show for both locals and tourists.

“If you want to walk on a beach come here.”
Reviewed 14 July 2012

No matter what the weather you can't beat a walk on the beach and if it happens to be miles of clean golden sand all the better. A couple of hours well spent.

“Great Local Asset”
Reviewed 6 July 2012

Lovely large beach with great facilities such as washrooms, gift shop / refreshments and restaurant. Parking reasonable although can get very busy at weekends in and out of season if the weather is good. Can be a bit windy due to the 3+ miles of beach and the open exposure.

“One of the best beaches in UK”
Reviewed 4 July 2012

This is one of our favourite places in UK. The sands seem to stretch for miles with beautiful sandbanks to explore behind them.

Parking is reasonable and you can rent a beach hut with a windbreak and two deckchairs for a very good price (£15.00 in June 2012).

The beach has a shop, a cafe, a restaurant, and clean toilets.

If you visit North Devon, North Cornwall or Somerset then do yourself (and your family) a favour and go to Saunton Sands for the day.
