Devon Swimming Beaches, featuring some wonderful North Devon locations

There's a selection of beaches in North Devon that could all be called the ideal swimming beach, and we each have our favourite sandy spot to visit for a splash in the sea. 

In this news piece, we'd like to share an article by our parent company Brend Hotels which looks at 10 of the best swimming beaches in Devon. Being based in Bideford, so many of these beaches are local to us for a splash!

Of course, Westward Ho!, the closest beach from where we are in Bideford, has to be on any list of Devon beaches, and we agree it rightly deserves a place here.

The sandy beach is backed by a pebble ridge and the waters make for excellent swimming as they are Blue Flagged rated.

Westward Ho! is the traditional beachside holiday location, with arcades, fun games, shops, toilets and food outlets. But for those who love to get their feet wet, the long stretch of beach has a great mix of rock pools, open sand and the refreshing sea. 

Yet that's just one of the ten beaches mentioned in the list. Around North Devon lie world famous locations like Saunton Sands and Woolacombe, all of them amazing in their own unique way.

Which Devon beaches would you add? Let us know via our Facebook or Twitter pages.
