Woolacombe is a great place to stay or visit, the views are amazing! It has good facilities, a few shops, nice pubs, chippy and a pasty shop with loads of different flavours.. The beach is the best, golden soft clean sand, very clean waters great for swimming and surfing, when the tide goes out there's good rockpools to spend time... More

Stunning beach that goes on for miles and miles. Not a lot of shops in the area but the beach will keep the kids digging for hours.

What a stunning beach, with an amazing stretch of sand. The whole area is beautiful but I think it must be crazy busy in the summer holidays. Lots of places to explore along the this stretch of beach with dunes, rocks, sea and beach.

No showers - and didn't realise that parking along the esplanade was free mid week out of season - we paid £4 in the golf course car park one day.

Very clean and let's dogs on which most beaches don't. You can see that they regularly clean the beach.
