Walk Description:



We meet outside the surf hire shop in Saunton beach car park, we do our warm-up exercises on the beach or in the shelter of the burrows before striding out for a 1.5 hour walk, (ensuring that we are back in time for refreshments all within the 2 hour parking charge!)

Depending on the conditions we will either walk through the burrows and back on the beach or we’ll walk to the famous Saunton golf course through the burrows then make our way up passing Saunton Manor and following the side of Saunton Down where we will stop to enjoy the spectacular views over Saunton beach and the Taw and Torridge estuaries beyond. 

The footpath down to the main road has recently been renovated and is in good condition, so an easy staircase descent!  We return to the beach via the back of Saunton Sands hotel for a cool-down looking out to sea.

A quick socially distance coffee at the beach café is always welcome.
