“Good flat beach near to a variety of facilities...”

“Good flat beach near to a variety of facilities...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014

A long broad stretch of sand when the tide is out leaving rock pools to explore. The outdoor swimming pool is closed due to storm damage. Easy access down a ramp or there are steps too. If you go down the ramp you get on the sand without having to walk over the pebbles. Just off the beach there are several places to eat in or grab takeaway food, souvenir shops, a co-op, toilets, mini golf and amusement arcades. There's also a very tasteful gift/home shop named Everything Westward across the green with a sweet shop next door which my son loved. There's also a surf shop and a kite shop. A lovely little seaside town. Worth a visit.

“Pity abut the storm damage”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

Access very limited due to storm damage but otherwise a reasonable visit. unfortunately there was not much to se because of extensive work being carrid out but we relied on memories of previous visits.
lots of new buildings have appeared and the small seaside town atmosphere is beginning to disapear.

“Westward Ho disappointment”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2014

Out of season admittedly, but facilities were unfinished and limited, the whole place lacked any sense of direction/centre/cohesion. Obvious gap between haves and have nots. Ill prepared for Mother's Day influx. We sat in one establishment waiting to be asked for our order(wouldn't let us order at bar) and left after 20 minutes as no one came near us! Suspect would be horrendous in high season - disappointed, such a romantic name, wouldn't go back!

“Stunning location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2014

Westward Ho Beach is absolutely stunning. On our visit over three days the beach was very clean, we did not see a single piece of litter on or off the beach and you can't beat the views. What a beautiful location, slightly windy at times but it is April and it blows the cobwebs away. We would definitely return to this area.
