This is open Easter - September 10am - 5pm, although the park is open all the time. There is a car park behind the pebble ridge and toilets at the visitors center.
A seaside resort with all the features one expects - amusement arcade, putting green, playground, beach shops, snack bars and seaside pubs. The beach - sand/pebbles - 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.
The beach is wheelchair accessible. Although it does have a sandy beach it is not really for sunbathing and surfing as it is in the estuary. It is however great to play on, fly kites etc. It is an attractive area and has always been popular with artists. When the tide is out it is very pleasant walking along the beach by the edge of the river Torridge with picturesque Appledore on the opposite side. The children find this fun too as there are lots of pools in the soft sand, many of which contain attractive seashells. There is car parking in the village There is also a car park behind the dunes. Pick up the tarka trail here. Nearby –Bideford
colourful cottages tumble down both sides of the narrow cobbled streets to the fourteenth century harbour below. Traffic has been banned from this village where time stands still. The Coastline around this area is rugged and offers spectacular walks along the coastal footpath and part of the South West Way. It is littered with tiny coves and picturesque harbours, once the haunt of smugglers, pirates and wreckers and the fascinating history is vividly told in many small museums along the way.
