Don't surf here. I have spent thousands of hours surfing and this is a real bashing with rocks and super sharp spider crabs. Stay away from the mad hoards of weird killer jellyfish. Top tip: go to Croyde

Lovely little secluded beach. Access is trickier than most but well worth it. Great for inquisitive kids, bbq's and dogs.

We were staying at Damage Barton and the temperature was nearly 30°. We needed to find somewhere we could cool off, without wanting the busy main Woolacombe beach. We walked down from Mortehoe and found the path down to this beach. There was one lady...More

Lovely, scenic beach that sits in a fantastic spot. Lots of rock pools for the kids to play in. Sandy beach and when the tide is out, I can see it being a great beach for surfers.

A great place to sit and take in all of the surrounding views , from Baggy Point to Morte Point. Lots of rocks to explore.. Or just to sit and relax and watch the world go by. Beautiful..

A delightful, attractive little beach laid mainly with shingle but nevertheless a lovely area. Gorgeous on a sunny day but arrive early and claim your patch!

Love this beach... You have to wait for low tide in order to access it. Bit of a hilly step but worth it... Just watch out for the nuddies lol.

This place is very secluded as its reached only by passing through a national trust area, up past the pub and around the side of a graveyard. You'll need to follow the very steep 'pathways' down, and head towards what looks like a bit of...More

A very steep walk down from Morthoe then steep steps to the beach and a walk across rocks but it's definitely worth it! It was a warm day when we made the trip here and luckily I had put swimming costumes in the bag. It...More

You have to walk down a footpath through a big hilly field of sheep to get to it - when you get to the cliff edge there are rock steps going down to the beach - that's the only way to access it :)
