Westward Ho!


map ref SS 435 295

Westward Ho! is a popular North Devon Holiday destination - based around a safe family beach, which extends for over two miles.

The Beach at Westward Ho! is easily accessible from the car park and is ideal for swimming and surfing. There are also pools in the rocks which have been adapted for swimming. Golden Bay as it is known, has a distinct pebble ridge, which marks the boundary between the beach and Northam Burrows Country Park.

Golden Bay has good facilities, including a cafe, toilets, deckchair hire, first aid, lifeguards and a lost child centre. There is access for people with disabilities and a pay & display car park which also has disabled parking spaces.

The wide expanse of firm compacted sand means that the beach at Westward Ho! is always busy, with a wide range of activities; bathing, surfing, canoeing, kite-surfing and para-karting are just some of the sports practised here. One of the most eye catching parts of the beach are the rows of traditional beach huts. Westward Ho! was named after the book of the same name written by Charles Kingsley in the mid 1800s.

The town itself is a "traditional" holiday resort and as such has many of the traditional holiday diversions on offer; amusement arcade, putting green, playground, beach shops, snack bars and seaside pubs.

From Westward Ho! there are stunning views across the Taw and Torridge estuary towards Saunton and beyond the pebble ridge there is the stunning scenery of Northam Burrows Country Park and the Golf Course.
