Westward Ho! beach wins the Blue Flag Award for 2018
The Blue Flag is an international award and quality mark bestowed upon beaches. Blue Flag beaches are recognised for their cleanliness, safety and for meeting the highest environmental standards, as well as the toughest international water quality standards. Yet again our beautiful Westward Ho! beach has come up as one of the Best Beaches in the UK. All of the Seahorse self catering luxury apartments enjoy panoramic views of the beach from the lounge, its also only a couple of minutes by foot.
Build Sandcastles on Our Blue Flag Beach
Westward Ho! Beach is right on the doorstep of our luxury self-catering apartments. This glorious stretch of sand has been awarded the Blue Flag for its water quality and safe, clean environment for children to play. With more than two miles of shoreline, there’s no shortage of space to build a sandcastle, fly a kite or take an invigorating swim in the Atlantic.
Catch a Few Early Spring Waves
With longer evenings, warmer air and water temperatures and plenty of Atlantic swell, Easter is a great time for surfing in North Devon. The gently sloping, sandy shore at Westward Ho! is perfect for surfers of all ages and abilities, and you can even check the conditions from the window of your seafront apartment in Westward Ho!. There are a number of excellent surf schools on the beach, providing all the equipment and guidance you and your family will need to catch your first wave.
Explore the Southwest Coast Path
North Devon is home to some of the UK’s most beautiful walking routes. From our Seahorse Apartments, you can follow the South West Coast Path east or west, with towering cliffs, breathtaking views and the chance to spot passing dolphins and seals. A scenic drive westward, the circular footpath at Hartland Abbey is glorious this time of year. Stroll along a secluded trail which meanders through ancient woods carpeted with wildflowers before following a gentle stream to the sea.
