Westward Ho! Beach

Two miles of sand stretching into the distance backed by a pebble ridge which divides the beach from Northam Burrows Country Park, a magnificent stretch of salt marsh, grassland and dunes.

Awesome beach for surfers/bodyboarders!

This beach is incredible...2 miles of the most incredible surf I've ever seen and however busy it gets it never seems crowded.

Felt like I was a kid again

The beach is huge....3miles of it! Although it's a sandy beach, the sand never actually dried out during our visit. But that was great for sandcastle building. Plenty of surfers make use of the beach and the rock pools are fantastic. Great fish and chip shop just up from the beach. Parking is easy. Definitely worth a visit.

Vast expanses of golden sand

Westward Ho! beach is a 'Blue Flag' beach, offering vast expanses of golden sand. Good for surfing, it is patrolled by lifeguards and is one of the safest in the area. An added attraction for youngsters are the many rock pools to explore at low tide.
