“Always a pleasure!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

Ever since i started going down to Woolacombe in the mid 90's I have thought Woolacombe beach to be one of the best beaches within the UK.

This year was no different, the standards of the beach were high as normal.

We were able to chill out without a care in the world.

Will be back soon

Keep it up

“Lovely Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

One of the best beaches I've been to in the UK. Lovely clean ocean and very lovely yellow sand. Only problem: It gets very crowded.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

There are loads of people complaining about the parking charges £7/8 pounds all day & loads more people complaining about having to cue to park - I personally think they answered there own question really. Its busy and popular!

“Brillant, Fab, Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

what appears to be miles of sandy beaches, pretty beach huts and shops and eateries all walkable distance. The beach has life guards in several places to keep bodyboarders and surfers seperate and safe.

“The Beach to Go To”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

Possibly one of the best beaches in the world, so it can get crowded a bit in high season, but if you are prepared to walk you can find a quieter spot. there are sand dunes at the back and rock pools to the right to keep the interest up. generally very clean. good lifeguard cover. surf can be very good especially at low tide on the push.
