Your WOW guide
The cream always goes on first…
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.
There’s no better way to fall in love with Devon than by stomping along its beautiful coast lines. Over rugged cliffs and churning waves, through sun-kissed farm land and by sleepy country pubs, our county is best discovered by foot.
Don’t know where to start? Here are our top three rambles around Woolacombe that everyone in the family can enjoy.
