Love this beach, so busy but so relaxing at the same time. Hired a windbreaker from the shop on the beach as saved carrying one. Search for crabs in the rock pools, surf the waves, sunbathe or people watch. Such a great beach to sit back and relax.

Where else do you need to go but to Woolacombe beach on a day when the surfs up. It's always clean, before the public arrive anyway, and before the gulls get going. The Lifeguard's deserve a medal for the attention they pay to keeping people safe. Whether you're a surfer or boarder remember to keep an eye on the flags,... More

Car park very close to the beach, all the facilities you want in terms of toilets, shops, chip van etc. Beach provides a massive area to spread out, and the sea was lovely and warm (late July). Would highly recommend this beach to anyone going to North Devon as the number 1 stop

Excellent beach and good, clean facilities, parking and food. Enjoyed the two days spent on the beach which was lovely. The lunch from the cafe was good, the toilets clean and so it is all highly recommended.

Fantastic beach with close access to car park, food and toilets. It's £8 per car to park all day, which I thought was a little high. The beach is a lovely sandy beach, long and wide, when the tide is low. Lifeguards are on standby with helicopters close by. Views are gorgeous everywhere you look and the water is exceptionally...

The beach was excellent as expected. We were lucky to get a parking space so close to the beach. It cost £4 if you leave before 11am and £8 after. Might sound much but it is very convenient and secure. Our daughter enjoyed building sandcastles and playing with the waves. The beach has lifeguards on duty and even the coastguard... More

This place should be an advert to why British people should be staying in the UK for their holidays and not going abroad. Enough UK seaside towns have fallen due to cheap foreign holidays. I doubt this place will be one of the ones declining. What a fantastic beach. Lovely sunny day yesterday 30th July. Lovely yellow sand and water... More

Beautiful beach, clean and long but not much to Woolacombe which surprised me. It's not a pretty character town just a small place by a big beach. My friends love it as its safe and lovely for small children. Parking is only possible for the whole day which feels like a bit of a scam to me. You can't just... More
