westward ho beach

Backed by the Northam Burrows Country Park and a large pebble ridge, Westward Ho! Beach is a long sandy expanse that is popular with swimmers, windsurfers, surfers and anglers looking to catch the Wild Sea Bass that makes the shore its home.

The beach is lined with seaside shops and an assortment of eateries – the perfect spot for a summer’s day out with the family.
