Woolacombe Beach Reviews
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 »
Lovely beach very clean. Great for looking for crabs. Paid £4 to park all day in nearby car park.we don't have dogs but they was on the beach this time of year March but it was still very clean. Nice ... more »
从英格兰其他地区前往康沃的必经之地是德文郡，这里物产丰饶，山水秀美。北部的Woolacombe海滩更是屡获殊荣，名列蓝旗海滩之一。更让我大吃一惊的是，在英国那么冷清的国度，竟有这样热闹的地方，摩肩接踵的人群倒也为海滩添了好多缤纷的颜色！搭配错落半山的小院们效果更佳。 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.
Great. A beautiful spot which for good reason gets very busy on a hot day. However, there is lovely quite stretch further along from the kiosks/toilets and surf hire place. My kids love it here. Rock pools and Sand dunes are fun and all in all very well kept considering the numbers of people coming in the summer. No one seems to keep dogs on a lead which is OK generally but worth knowing if your kids get freaked by them like one of mine does.
Beautiful, just breath taking. Words fail me. If there were 100 stars I'd tick them
Beautiful and clean we never grow tired of time spent here .
One of the very best beaches in Europe and right at top in UK. Unspoilt miles of sandy beach with rock pools, tidal drift wood, pond life, clean water, cliff walks, coves all to enjoy. The beach you hope for.
Nice beach, avoid the public toilets they were rank! Big car park £4 if you leave before 1pm £8 all day
