Great surfing beach and good rock pooling and climbing when the tides out. Also a really nice sand beach to sit on and chill. Shops, bars and showers/ toilets for when you're done surfing or just walking along the beach.

Woolacombe has a huge, wide sandy beach, great for bodyboarding or a beach walk. Nice (but very little) cafe near the car park does an ok coffee and cream tea.

We visited Woolacombe as we were holidaying in North Devon. We parked our car on a picturesque and elevated car park on Woolacombe Warren. The beach itself is lovely with bathers in evidence late September .A vast expanse of sand and lovely sea and cliff views

What a fantastic beach especially if you get a late summers day as I did. I stayed at Greycliffe B&B very close to the beach. Great vibe in all the bars and cafes.. Highly recommend
