Absolutely loved the beach it was the cleanest I have seen! There were ample shops in the town and lots to do there if needed.

We have been going to Woolacombe for years and never tire of the view from Mortehoe and Puttsborough. It's clean and you can take your dog on the beach. Perfect.

Visited the beach with the family and stayed all day. The quality of the sand and general facilities are excellent. The kids love building sand castles and paddlling in the sea. Unusually car parking was easy and plentiful.

Such a lovely beach plus it is dog friendly so we could take our puppy let him have a run around and a play it is nice sand as well. It is a bit far from the shops they need to put little shops on the beach like tea shacks just dotted but a very lovely beach.

Beautiful beach, clean and well maintained. Worthy of its best beach 2015 award. Organised sections of beach which were pet friendly. Views stunning and good walks

Woolacombe has kept is character through the decades, with an increase in long surf boards so other bathers need to take care. The sands, sea and views are all exceptional.

Dogs allowed on certain areas of the beach. Toilets clean. Plentiful parking near to the beach so making for easy access.
