Absolutely gorgeous place to visit, the beach was clean and people respected that. Stunning sunsets at night. The food was rediculously expensive for what it was, we had a small and I mean small hot dog - it was £3 and wasn't very nice! so would definately recommend taking your own food. The beach was pretty crowded and the rescue... More

Stunning clean sandy beach. Shop on site to hire body boards etc from, and toilets are clean and well kept. Lovely green areas for walking too. Park roadside to get the best parking rates - car park is very expensive,

Armed with nets and crab-lines a visit to Woolacombe beach was organised. Even on a wet blustery Thursday there are many hardy souls enjoying the sea and we had a great time exploring the rock pools while getting plenty of fresh air.

Beautiful beach with stunning views and gorgeous coastal walks. The beach is really clean, the sea is a lush green/blue and there are many activities to join in with such as surfing lessons etc. Lots of quant coffee shops, restaurants and shops nearby.

We visit Woolacombe regularly and its beach is one of the main reasons we do. The sand is so fine and the water clear , and the beach itself is so clean. It's also really reassuring to have life guards regularly patrolling . We take our chocolate lab there and love the fact that once you go past the rocks... More

A lovely beach with wonderful views. If you are able to get a parking space on the road, you can pay £1 an hour to park and choose to stay for a couple of hours. However, if you can't get a space to park there, and only the car park is available, it costs £8 whether you want to stay... More
