Putsborough Sands is an award winning North Devon Beach, with three miles of golden sand to enjoy.

Just to the north of Croyde Bay, it is quieter than nearby Woolacoombe, with less facilities available. The beach is popular with families, and a surfing hotspot. There are lifeguards on duty during the summer, and lots of water sports activities.
