What a beautiful sandy beach

We can wait to visit again in the summer... clean and tidy. Great shops, parking, hotels nearby. We travelled 4 hours to stand on its fab sands.

There was no one here - but it was New Year's Eve! Lovely in the day time and the jewel in the crown of the north Devon coast. Nice to look over to Lundy and imagine.

This is a gorgeous beach with lots of space and stunning scenery. It is clean and well kept and also well lifeguarded. There are plenty of shops & eating places nearby which is great. There is ample parking but it is quite pricey.

This is such a beautiful, clean beach that is manned by life guards. Perfect for a beautiful morning walk or just a fun day on the beach body boarding . Love it! ❤️

I lived in Ilfracombe for 5 and a half years, my daughter grew up on this beach. I took her and my youngest (who's never been) there in October half-term, even though it was a bit cold and rainy, we still had a great time, and got some fab photos. There's just something magical about the place for me!

Best beach in the world. Been so many times. It's always clean and great for building sandcastles or talking a stroll

Fantastic beach. Something for everyone here, ranging from full-on chips and ice-cream on the beach to the more secluded dunes. Even when busy it's easy to fine a quiet spot by walking just a short way up the beach. Surfing or bodyboarding is great with lifeguards in season. Out of season the beach is a real beauty, my favourite time... More
