Barricane Beach, Mortehoe

4.9
#2 of 6 in Parks in Woolacombe
Rolling hills and rocky, jagged cliffs rise out of the sea and sand at Barricane Beach. Visitors come from all over for the wispy rock formations, and they stay for the shell collecting. Also known as Combesgate Beach, this site boasts many exotic seashells like cowries, which often travel from as far as the Caribbean Islands. The beach is best at low tide, when there are plenty of rock pools for exploring. Though there are no lifeguards here, it is still popular among surfers and swimmers. At high tide the beach becomes inaccessible, transforming into a natural rock pool. Amenities include a quaint cafe right on the sand that dishes up classic favorites like curry.
