Spring is one of the most magical times to enjoy the multi award winning beach at Westward Ho! on the North Devon coastline.
Exploring the beach really is a must if you are coming to stay with us in the five-star self-catering Seahorse Apartments. Our bespoke accommodation is a stone’s throw from the golden, Blue Flag beach of Westward Ho! The waves here break onto a gently sloping, sandy bottom, making it the perfect spot for surfers of all levels. Spring also offers some of the year’s best conditions. North Devon Surf School is one of the country’s longest-established surfing schools. Located just metres away from the ocean, it offers heated changing rooms, showers and an on-site café to warm up in after a bracing dip in the sea. Justin and his team are on hand to give expert surfing tuition to surfers or all ages and abilities. We are close by to many wonderful North Devon beaches including Saunton Sands in Saunton, Tunnels Beach in Ilfracombe, Croyde, Woolacombe and Instow
Milder weather and longer evenings offer the perfect opportunity for coastal walks. At the end of the beach you will find Northam Burrows Country Park, this is designated site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) its home to a diverse range of natural habitats, including salt marsh, open grassland, rocky shore and sand dunes; it is a haven for all kinds of wildlife, from vivid lichens to coastal birds. In the summer season, be sure to visit the Northam Burrows Centre (located towards the north of the beach) to discover more about the wildlife, or even join one of the free family events run by the team there; events range from rock pool rambles and nature walks to sandcastle competitions and treasure hunts!
Just up from the burrows you will find The Royal North Devon Golf Club, which is the oldest links course in the UK, the club is open to visitors all year round.
