Discover | Woolacombe

As its popularity continues to grow in the UK, Woolacombe has become a Mecca for surfing and other watersports activities. Situated along the dramatic coastline of North Devon, it’s now one of the most favoured beaches in the country.

The golden sands of Woolacombe stretch for three miles, from the edge of the village across to the hamlet of Putsborough.

The main beach has been blue flag awarded and benefits from virtually rock-free shallow waters. It’s ideal for everyone, from those taking to the waves for the first time and learning to surf, to experienced surfers looking for their next break. It’s also ideal for families and benefits from RNLI lifeguards, first aid and a lost child centre.

The relaxed atmosphere of the village itself is geared up to serve the tourist trade with numerous shops, places to eat and drink, or simply buy an ice-cream! Many of these are now open all year round making Woolacombe an ideal place for a weekend getaway, whatever the time of year.

To the edge of Woolacombe Beach lies the shingle cove of Barricane which sits below the coastal path and the edge of the neighbouring Mortehoe. Following this public footpath will take you around Morte Point to the village of Lee. Along the way you will be treated to some truly magnificent scenery and stunning views of the coastline and Bristol Channel.
