Adventure awaits in the heart of North Devon. For those on campervan and motorhome holidays, the region offers stunning wild swimming spots. Let’s discover our top five picks.

But be sure to check the tide times as the high tides do restrict usage in some of these spots!

Woody Bay, Parracombe

This peaceful spot offers an ideal wild swimming escape. Picture yourself dipping into serene coves, encircled by grand cliffs. Fancy a swim near a waterfall? Woody Bay is your go-to place.

Located west of Lynmouth on Exmoor’s coast, it boasts stunning views. And a secret sea pool even appears at low tide. The walk to the bay may take time, but the reward is worth it.

Tunnels Beach, Ilfracombe

Next on our list is Tunnels Beach in Ilfracombe. This unique spot requires a walk through four hand-carved rocky tunnels, leading you to a wild swimming experience like no other. The sight of the crystal-clear waters awaiting you at the end of the tunnel journey is nothing short of magical.

Westward Ho Beach, Bideford

And one of our faves, we have Westward Ho! Beach in Bideford. This expansive sandy beach, backed by a pebble ridge, offers plenty of room for wild swimming. Its shallow waters make it a safe choice for families or less confident swimmers. After your swim, our Cozee Cape will ensure you stay warm and dry as you relax on the beach.
