Blue Flag Beaches On the doorstep 

Westward Ho!, North Devon's only Blue Flag Beach

In 2015 Westward Ho! Beach was awarded The Blue Flag for the 11th year running..  The Blue Flag is an exclusive eco-label awarded to over 3200 beaches and marinas in 37 countries across Europe, South Africa, Morocco, New Zealand, Canada and the Caribbean in the past year. The Blue Flag Programme is owned and run by the independent non-profit organisation Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE). Westward Ho! is a haven for beach lovers as well as golfers, who can enjoy a relaxing round at the famous Royal North Devon Course.
