Baggy Point, Croyde, Devon

Baggy Point is the name given to the rugged headland between Croyde and Putsborough Sands in North Devon, jutting into the sea with astounding coastal views and waves dramatically crashing onto the rocks. It’s a popular spot for watching the sunset, coasteering and rock climbing, and for walkers, being on the South West Coast Path; there’s a circular two mile walk from the National Trust car park and the first half a mile has been levelled and tarmacked to allow for easy access – after that it gets narrower and a bit steep in places.  

Take your binoculars because it’s a good opportunity for watching seabirds and if you’re lucky, you might even spot seals swimming in the bay. There are loos back at the car park and if you fancy a cup of tea, a nice piece of cake or a light lunch you can go to Sandleigh Tea Rooms and Gardens where they have their own vegetable plots, otherwise toddle into Croyde where there are cafes and pubs in the village, and incidentally, one of the best surfing beaches in the UK.

That island you can see several miles out to the west? That’s Lundy – catch a boat out from Ilfracombe or Bideford.
