Woolacombe Beach reviews
The beach is an outstanding area of beauty and i totally am in awe of it but the car parking is DISGUSTING. Sorry, but I don't agree with £10. more »
Beautiful beach and out of season very quiet, we walked from Woolacombe to Putsborough had a coffee in the beach hut cafe and back. The beach is spotlessly clean and a beautiful place to spend a few..... more »
Long sandy beach, clean and safe, good for surfers. Beautiful views, one of the best beaches in North Devon. more »
Beautiful beach. Best to arrive early to find parking.
Excellent beach. Nice and clean. You really have to use the surf hire shop and try surfing. Great fun
Stunning beach, perfect for surfing. Parking a little expensive at £8 regardless how long you are there. Beach gets very busy however plenty of room for everyone.
Beautiful long sandy beach with shallow water and great surf. Very busy but clean. Amazing rock pools at low tide
A part where no dogs. A part where dogs on lead and a final part where dogs are welcome. But, sand, sand, sand. Great. Take a picnic 😀
