Saunton is a village located approximately two miles from Braunton on the North Devon coast in the South West of England.

Several kilometres long, the village borders Braunton Burrows, the heart of North Devon's Biosphere Reserve, the first "new style" UNESCO-designated Biosphere Reserve. Its beach Saunton Sands is part of the Taw-Torridge Estuary.

The Saunton Surf Life Saving Club is based here.

The South West Coast Path National Trail runs through the village, and gives access to walks along the rugged North Devon coast.

Saunton Down lies within the North Devon Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
