A very clean and sandy beach apt for families with small children to spend a summer day. Good food at the Captain's table restaurant. Don't miss the awesome dairy icecream at Fudgies bakehouse.

Fantastic long sandy beach, very clean and looks pretty safe although we didn't venture into the sea. Dogs are not allowed on the main beach but are allowed on further up. Can't really fault it

We walked over Potters Hill from Woolacombe to Puttsborough and back to Woolacombe along the beach.Fantastic views - but very steep in places. The beach was a joy to walk along.

Woolacombe is a big, open beach, lovely for an easy walk. However it is a sand beach so maybe not easy for all elderly and/or disabled. Both this and Croyde have very close car parks but wouldn't take a wheelchair to either... More
