Experienced surfers will love the challenge of the exceptional waves around the Peninsula. The best surf beaches are at Speke's Mill Mouth and Hartland Quay. See the Beaches and Beauty Spots interactive map.
Beginners and body boarders can travel to nearby Sandymouth, Bude beaches and Westward Ho! for flat sandy beaches and RNLI lifeguarded waters. You can hire or buy equipment and take lessons from North Devon Surf School.
