The beach is large and sandy. The were a number of people on the beach when we visited but most were surfers.

felt very safe on this beach and my son loves it, very clean and tidy with a doggy side and a non doggy side, so best of both worlds.

Worth a visit if in the area, miles long and a lovely sandy beach. Great cafe at each end of the beach, The beachcomber cafe is fantastic and does a great range of meals and snacks

Really one of the best beaches in the UK, lovely for a picnic and a stroll. Surf looks pretty impressive too!

Been 3 times this year and the weather was kind so able to walk the beach many times. Although parking fee is climbing (£6) but if you stay all day suppose it's not bad and plenty of facilities close by. Blue flag is justified and good surfing.

Fantastic beach although food very expensive. Plenty of choice if you want to walk. You must try the ice cream it is very creamy and many flavours

Nearly 3 miles of clean soft beach sand. Same length of sandy dunes for exploring. Surfers paradise. Car parking charges on the up as everywhere. Cheap day out though - if the weather is fine.

Dog friendly on the one side. The only thing that spolis it are the swings and minature train etc on the sands which I think gives the place a bit of a tacky feel.

Thank you for taking time to review our beach. We are responsible for two of the four car parks in and around Woolacombe so this response covers our Esplanade and Sandy Burrows car parks. We are a private company who should we choose to operate a pay and display hourly rate system would have to take a civil action each... More
