“Woolacombe beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

A great sandy beach with huge rollers for you surfers. It's easy to see why the Daily Mail voted this beach the best. It is easy accessible from the car parks of which there is plenty of space.. There are plenty of bars and places to eat. If you fancy, there are some great cliff top walks.

“Very clean beach and dog friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

fantastic beach and dog friendly which is a real plus for us as we have two dogs. Very clean beach close to toilets, parking very good & the beach is set in a beautiful location. Really enjoyed going down there and it wasn't far from where we were staying in woolacombe bay. Great beach for all kinds of people. Great for surfing also.

“Rugged and breath taking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

Clean, safe, extensive flat sand. Great for kids and dogs. Plenty of room for all visitors and ideal if you walk down to Putsborough for a hot chocolate before your return journey.
