“Fantastic Beach!”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

Pretty with fantastic waves - can really see why it's popular with surfers. There's a little stream that runs through the beach - do not underestimate the speed and force of it! :) Wellies are recommended in winter or you'll definitely have wet ankles.

“A Beautiful Beach, in a Beautiful part of the country”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

We visited here at the beginning of October 2012. Miles of sandy beach, if you walk a little further down the beach from Woolacombe Town, you will find it deserted, with endless sand dunes. There is something for everyone, and all weathers, very peaceful.

One of the 2 best beaches I have seen in England ( the other being Hayle beach)

Popular with surfers which are great to watch

“Plenty of room!”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

Loads of space! Mainly clean except when the tide came in and brought yucky foam with it! Dogs should be allowed on all the beach with responsible owners, not just at one end.

“fantastic beach”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

clean sandy beach with lots of rock pools. The ice cream place on the beach was very expensive for basic cones - go to handmade ice shop a short walk up the path
