Discover North Devon, a Surfers Paradise, and retreat to The Carlton for stylish comfort
Perhaps one of Ilfracombe’s most prized features is our location. A coastal town situated in North Devon, we are nestled on the Atlantic Coast. Surfers come to North Devon to get away from city life and experience some of the best surf to be found anywhere in the UK. A stay in Ilfracombe allows you to avoid the hubbub of larger, more well known towns, along the same coastline but with the same buzz!
Bring your own board, rent everything you need or even learn to surf at many nearby beaches. With an array of stunning locations to surf, you could easily visit a different beach every day of your trip and take home memories that will last a lifetime.
These are our top 3 surf spots near Ilfracombe:
Just along the coast from Ilfracombe sits stunning Woolacombe beach. The beach goes on as far as the eye can see, beautiful golden sands stretch on and on. And the waves? Well there is a reason Woolacombe is dubbed a ‘surf town’!
Make this your first surf spot when you visit us and you might not want to even try another beach!
Putsborough beach, or simply ‘Putts’ as the locals call it, is possibly one of the most hidden of our amazing beaches here in North Devon. We’ve yet to find anyone disappointed with this beach. Surfers and body-boarders alike enjoy the rolling waves year round for good reason!
It’s worth going a little out of the way to discover – you’ll be glad you did!
Croyde is one of those places for which words can’t really describe how beautiful it really is. Largely unspoilt, there are some local facilities but here you really feel like you could be lost anywhere in the world – and with waves and a beach like this, you wouldn’t even be bothered if you were!
At less than 20 minutes away from Ilfracombe it really is a beach worth visiting if surfing is your passion. Come and discover why surfers flock to this gorgeous spot.
