Lovely beach

Really lovely and clean beach. My daughter spent hours climbing the rocks! Lovely views from the top out across the sea. Definitely the nicest beach we've been to in this country

This is an amazing beach, 3 miles of golden sandy beach. Parking is fairly easy and there are lots of spaces, although you will have to pay to park as there are not free spaces above 30 minutes.

Love this beach, it has everything for a perfect family Summer day! Probably my favourite beach in the UK and most certainly my daughters too. Bodyboarding is a must.

We stayed in Woolacombe during our holidays. The beach is absolutely beautiful with some breath talking views. Lovely sandy beach with lifeguards between 10am - 6pm. Lovely little river running down the middle of the beach for younger children and older children who just want to play and have fun.

Beautiful beach, worthy of its title as best British Beach 2015. Unfortunately the weather wasn't great but the days we did get on it were lovely. Even a few early evening wanders weren't spoiled by the greyness above

Ice cream and drinks vans dotted along the beach so not to far to go if you a cooling refreshment!! Adequate toilet facilities and parking... More

A superb beach which is great for walking along with dogs down to Putsborough, about an hours walk with a cafe and the cleanest beach toilets I have ever come across.
