Catch some waves at Woolacombe Beach

Woolacombe, Devon

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

Woolacombe Bay in Devon has miles of golden sand, interesting pools for exploring, rocks for climbing, and gentle sea for swimming and paddling. For the more adventurous, there’s also a vibrant surf culture, and surf lessons are very easy to come by!

Dogs are also welcome all year round, meaning you can spend quality time with the whole family. Take the kids for a dip in the sea, search under rocks for crabs and eels, eat al-fresco on the sand and take an afternoon stroll along the South West Coast Path.
