Catch some rays and waves at Woolacombe Beach

Woolacombe, Devon

North Devon has some of the county’s most popular family beaches including award-winning Woolacombe.

Woolacombe in Devon has miles of golden sand, interesting pools for exploring, rocks for climbing, gentle sea for swimming and paddling. For the more adventurous there’s a vibrant surf culture, and grabbing a few surf lessons is easy and fun for all.

A seaside holiday is more than just a great beach though, its a chance to connect as a family, to discover, explore and share experiences. Devon is all about being fun and adventurous, letting the kids stay up late, collect their own eggs for breakfast and cooking on campfires.

Teaching the kids how to swim in the sea, taking them rock-pooling and searching under rocks for crabs and eels. Exploring sand dunes, eating al-fresco and discovering new foods. Riding on steam trains and open topped buses, climbing hills, learning to fish and swimming in rivers. Devon is about making family memories to last a lifetime.
