Instow Beach is located Bideford, Devon, UK
Instow Beach is a long sandy beach backed by dunes on an estuary (rivers Taw and Torridge) very popular for fishing and sailing as well as other beach activities. When the tide goes out the beach becomes very large with some excellent walks.
Nearby RSPB reserve and the sand dunes provide good walks.
A ferry runs between Instow and Appledore during the summer.
There is car parking although limited in the village and also a car park behind the dunes. Parking is limited and it is a good choice to visit via the Tarke Trail which is the old branch line.
