AN AMAZING COASTAL ADVENTURE ALONG BAGGY POINT IN CROYDE, NORTH DEVON
“Many thanks for the day. Coasteering Croyde was an ideal place to explore the coast with some excellent jumps. Highly recommend Surfing Croyde Bay. They Minibus you down to the area which saves quite a bit of walking.
Instructors managed the group well, especially with a mixture of abilities. My 10 year old, was a bit slower over the rocks than the adults. So they moved us to the front to get a head start. Simple but it worked well for the group.
Hot showers after too which were much needed. Keep up the good work!
