Getting to Ocean Fest

By its very nature, Croyde Bay takes  a while to get to, but it's well worth it when you get there.

Please be thoughtful towards local residents when getting there and staying there.

By Foot
When walking to and from the festival site, please do so QUIETLY and with due respect to the local inhabitants. Access down Moor Lane is especially narrow and it is advised that you walk in single file and take great care of vehicles. PLEASE do not consider short cuts back to your campsites or trespassing through private property.

By Car
