  • One of the best beaches around in the U.K. in my opinion. Really clean beach with lifeguards in tithe season. It’s also a dog friendly beach so they are aloud on in certain places at times.  more »

  • From other parts of England to Convo, it is Devon, which has a rich and beautiful landscape. The Woolacombe beach in the North is an award-winning one of the blue Flag beaches. Even more surprising to me is that in Britain so deserted country, unexpectedly has such lively place, crowds the crowd poured also for the beach to add a lot of colorful color! The small courtyard with the scattered mid-levels is better.

  • Beautiful, definitely going back. And will definitely be going back to Blue Bayou Beach Takeaway (Blue hut, furthest side of main car park). Excellent service, coffee & food, catering for all of us peeps who need different milks, gf and vegan. Best takeaway on a beach I’ve ever seen xxx
  • Beautiful, clean beach with good facilities either end. A lovely walk on a cool day and perfect for sand castles and bathing when warm.
