Crow Point: Taw & Torridge Estuary Part of Braunton Burrows

Crow point is on the corner of the Taw & Torridge estuary and part of the amazing Braunton Burrows UNESCO site at the end of Saunton sands, North Devon

A few Horses we riding along the beach, bikes and walkers but few and far between. It is a hidden delight at the southern end of the sand dunes of braunton burrows. Very wild and natural and the day we visited it was very breezy! The tide was out when we went and the vast view was amazing. Great view across the estuary to Instow, Appledore and the tip of Northam Burrows at the end of Westward Ho! Beach.

We found a beautiful wood boat slowly disappearing into the sand on our walk out to the tip and crow point.

This part of the coast is privately owned by Christies Estates.

Walking north east of crow point car park you can walk along the south west coast path and the path runs along the boundaries of Horsey Island Wildlife Reserve. There is a Komoot cycle route for Horsey Island.
