Summer is approaching and everyone’s hoping to be back at the beach soon. You might have seen photos of crowded beaches in the news, but the reality is that if you take sensible and simple precautions the seaside can be one of the safest places to be. Especially because we’re often told by sources like the World Health Organisation (WHO) that it’s far less easy to transmit viruses outdoors in the fresh air than in enclosed indoor spaces. And beaches are all about clean sea air and space!
Hours of sunshine on your skin, miles of sand between your toes, salty spray in your hair and the sea calling you in for a dip. Woolacombe is a magical place where childhood dreams are made, and adults start to dream again. Read more
As dog owners ourselves, we understand dog owners. And part of the reason we live and work in Woolacombe is that it’s great for dogs. Or is that part of the reason that we have dogs? Either way, here’s a taste of what we can offer you and your best friend.
Devon boasts some of the most memorable and unspoiled beaches in the UK. From shell-full shores to miles of golden sand, pebble ridges to world-class surf and amazing sand dunes as far as the eye can see. Part #1 of our beach guide covers the Woolacombe area.
We may be biased but our breathtaking North Devon coastline is nothing but spectacular, and here in Woolacombe the golden beaches are at their very best. Rolling surf, magnificent cliffs and proud headlands all alongside the softest sand and the scent of salty sea spray.
The summer holidays are upon us, which means most of the beaches in Devon will be littered with families, jostling for space to play frisbee and queuing in the sun for a lunch time cone of chips. But how about a secret beach spot reserved just for you? How about a quiet spot tucked away from the tourists? How about dramatic scenes the locals like to keep to themselves?
I moved to Woolacombe a few months ago and taking a surfing lesson was definitely on my “must do” list. I became fascinated with watching the surfers and those having their first go in the water. I love the idea of riding waves and being so close to nature. I love surfing culture, the vibes, everything about it. I want to be part of it.
I can swim well yet something about the ocean makes me nervous. I want to have a go at surfing so I need to overcome this.
