Every time we come we always have to visit the beach out of the 4 days we stayed we went twice clean and tidy only down fall is if you want to stay a couple of hours parking is £8.00 for the day so to make the most needs to be a days trip

This is one of my favourite beaches, great for my kids who love body boarding, life guards in several places, very long and sandy with sand dunes, plenty of carparking next to the beach, can't wait to go back in April!!

Ever since i started going down to Woolacombe in the mid 90's I have thought Woolacombe beach to be one of the best beaches within the UK. This year was no different, the standards of the beach were high as normal. We were able to chill out without a care in the world. Will be back soon Keep it up

One of the best beaches I've been to in the UK. Lovely clean ocean and very lovely yellow sand. Only problem: It gets very crowded.

what appears to be miles of sandy beaches, pretty beach huts and shops and eateries all walkable distance. The beach has life guards in several places to keep bodyboarders and surfers seperate and safe.

Right near the woolacombe village shops and restaurants - only downfall was £8 parking but if you spend the day on the beach - which we did a few times then it isn't too bad. Dogs are allowed on...
