This golden sandy beach in the North Devon village of Saunton can not only be described as highly impressive but picturesque too.
This privately owned beach is popular with surfers and walkers and in the Summer it is an ideal destination for families to swim and relax in idyllic surroundings.
The beach stretches proudly towards Crow point and standing prominently behind is a labyrinth of incredible sand dunes which back onto Braunton Burrows and are right at the centre of the North Devon Biosphere.
You can get an incredible vantage point from the top road by Saunton Sands Hotel where you can take in the invigorating vista. Watching the surfers riding the waves and looking across the estuary towards Westward Ho! and Hartland Point in the distance.
I love nothing best than standing in the sand dunes early in the morning with the sun rising behind me waiting for the sun to penetrate the clouds and colour the sky .For me this is a fantastic start to hopefully a fantastic day.
