Coasteering, which is often referred to as Britain’s fastest growing adventure sport, is a combination of swimming, jumping and climbing along the coastline. Explore caves, leap off the cliffs into deep waters, swim through gullies and scramble across rugged terrain, each activity giving you the chance to see Croyde from an entirely new perspective.
The sport is relatively new, with its first recorded practise in 1985, in Pembrokeshire, Wales. Since then it has spread to many coastal areas of the UK including Devon, Cornwall, the North East and Scotland. We think Croyde is the ultimate location for coasteering. With Baggy point just a 10 minute walk from our school we don’t waste any time getting started. The landscape around the headland is so varied that every coasteer session is high energy and adrenaline fuelled. Plus, the North Devon coastline is so large, you’ll never run out of places to explore.
At Surf Southwest nothing is more important to us than your safety, which is why we have experienced and highly qualified instructors with you at all times. The guides adapt their routes and courses daily, depending on the tide, swell size and weather conditions. You don’t need any previous experience to get the most out of a coasteering session, it’s up to you to choose how far you want to push yourself, or how easy you’d like to take the session. Plus it’s suitable and fun for adults and kids alike, so the whole family can get involved.
Being in the heart of North Devon means you can easily fit in a session during your holiday. You could try surfing on the beach one day, stand up paddleboarding around the coves the next then try leaping off the cliffs on your last. We can’t think of a better way to experience Croyde’s gorgeous coastline. Here at SSW we can arrange it all for you, so all you need to do is turn up and have fun.
