Westward Ho’s! is one of the most popular venues in the area but its biggest drawback is the pebble ridge on the beach, which the tide reaches at its highest. The road runs the full length of the beach though so you can pick the best launch point for the wind direction. Thought to be the best beach in a S or SW wind it’s still quite good in a NW, though Saunton is better. If you are staying on this side of the River Taw then it’s probably not worth driving through Barnstaple to get to Saunton though it might be in a NW.
