Woolacombe Beach is one of the finest beaches in the West Country it is easy to see why it has won numerous awards.
Woolacombe Beach is one of the finest beaches in the West Country it is easy to see why it has won numerous awards. It's a big favourite for families and surfers attracting thousands of people each summer to this beach and its bohemian edged resort. The rolling surf brings unbroken Atlantic breakers from across thousands of miles of ocean to pound on this three-mile long stretch of golden sand. The sheer length of the beach means it is possible to find quiet places in the surf even at the height of summer. This is one of the reasons it is fast becoming renowned as an international surfing hotspot.
Geographically the beach lies between the rugged unspoilt Baggy and Morte Points. The rolling surf brings unbroken Atlantic breakers from across thousands of miles of ocean to pound on this three-mile long stretch of golden sand.
Easy access and three large car parks are available with space for 3000 cars including disabled parking.
