Rested at the weekend with the family. Had a great time. The beach is really great, although I did not believe until the last.

Miles of sandy beach & lovely clean sea! Village has all the shops required & not overly expensive. Nothing to dislike!

Dog friendly beach which is really clean and well kept. We came here every day with the dogs and ate pasties from the local shop as we walked along the golden sands.. This is the best beach around..bar none!

Brilliant. Fantastic weather. Enjoyed peace and quiet. A great place to unwind and relax. If you are into water sports, this is the place to be.

woolacombe beach is to die for and is separated for dog owners and non dog owners so you could take your pick. I thought food and drinks were very expensive so it could be hard going on a tight budget especially if you have kids but the weather was superb and there is plenty to do, enjoy!!

Loved Puttsborough Sands at the end of the beach a long walk from Woolacombe but worth it. Café at the end which also did food and gifts. By car though the car park was expensive, only spent a couple of hours there but had to pay the full day's rate of £6.00

Very wide and sandy. Pay and display everywhere in car parks though. Lifeguards on duty until about 5pm.

miles on a lovely sandy beach. Sadly expensive to park. Opposite the red barn is a cheaper car park.
