The West Country / Devon region
North Devon has some of the finest coastal scenery in the UK - from the deep wooded valleys or 'combes' that typify the Exmoor coastline to the large golden sandy beaches at Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton. The new UNESCO World Biosphere status is centred on Braunton Burrows a unique area of over 1000 acres of sand dunes populated by rare plants and stretching out along the Taw/Torridge estuary into marshes and the mediaeval Great Field.
The beaches make the area popular not only for family holidays but also for thousands of watersports enthusiasts who come all year round for surfing, kite-surfing, wind-surfing, kayaking and beach activities such as kite-buggying and sand yachting. The Goldcoast OceanFest in June celebrates many of these exciting activities in a two-day extreme sports bonanza.
The South West Coast Path and Exmoor National Park also make the area a popular destination for walking with the increasingly popular Walking Festival in May each year taking in some of the area's finest coast and countryside. The Tarka Trail is centred on Barnstaple and provides off road opportunities for walking, cycling and one of the most scenic train rides in the region down to Exeter.
