Down End Car Park Croyde Bay is open all year round and is the largest car park in the village. Because of its proximity to the beach and its beautiful view of the bay, this is a popular place to park for beach goers, surfers and locals alike. We also have a surf academy and cafe on site; enjoy a surf lessons, hire equipment, and get your lunch all in one place. A toilet block and a beach shower are added benefits.

Our popular pay & display system means that you just pay for the hours that you’re with us. So come on down, even if you’re just nipping down for a surf or a coffee, and blow away those cobwebs on the beach.

If you are a frequent visitor it might be worth considering a seasonal parking pass (see terms and conditions). Passes can be purchased below and posted to you or be collected from The Drop In - please specify on the form.

PLEASE NOTE: The Drop In cafe is only open at weekends until the Easter holidays (Wed 28th March 2018), so in order to display a pass on your windscreen from 1st March please opt to have your pass sent to you if you cannot get there on a weekend. (or purchase a ticket until you can collect).

2017-2018 passes are now INVALID. Please renew your pass or purchase a pay & display ticket. 

Passes will be sent out in mid to late February.

Passes are valid from 1st March 2018.

If you own a holiday property and wish to purchase a season pass for the property, please contact us directly by email.

We have disabled parking areas and accessible toilet facilities but please note that wheelchair access to the beach is not possible from this location.
