Experience Woolacombe

Sand, Sea and Sunshine

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.

A surfer’s paradise with something for every individual. Three miles of beautiful sand, sweeping waves and the rolling Woolacombe Downs. Sun worshippers, rock-poolers and sandcastle builders alike flock here to enjoy the laid-back atmosphere of our beautiful seaside village.

Sports enthusiasts have a host of activities available, from sunrise to sunset, and everything is within walking distance. Surfing, kitesurfing, coasteering, climbing, fishing, paragliding, hand-gliding, horse riding, and every other action-sport you can imagine.

Woolacombe Inspires

Woolacombe has everything to inspire and astonish, making holiday memories that will last a lifetime. Try something new, something you never thought you would. Take that chance and make those holiday dreams come true.

“It’s a beautiful thing to have lungs that allow you to breathe air, legs that allow you to climb mountains and arms that allow you to swim oceans.”

Coming to Devon as a family? Maybe you’re looking for a romantic retreat? Are you bringing the grandparents to look after the kids, so you can enjoy the odd evening out on your own again? We’re waiting for you all.

Eclectic boutiques, restaurants, cafes and bars, surf shops, coffee shops and your general stores sit over a few streets. Woolacombe has all you need for the happiest of holidays.

Discover Woolacombe

Woolacombe nestles between the rugged beauty of Exmoor and the powerful Atlantic Ocean and sits on a coastline with side-by-side beautiful beaches. Our Northern part of Devon is a paradise waiting to be discovered.

Putsborough, Barricane and Coombesgate beaches are sitting on our doorstep. Shell beach (Barricane) has become famous, at least locally, for the small café serving amazing homemade Sri Lankan curries. Take your favourite bottle and discover how good it feels to watch the sun go down with your loved ones.

Explore Woolacombe

Wander up to beautiful Mortehoe or head across the sands to the unspoiled headland that is Baggy Point. The village and beach of Croyde are only a few steps further, and worth a whole day of exploration, at the very least.

In the other direction you’ll find Lee Bay, Ilfracombe Harbour and many boats out to Lundy Island. Pods of porpoises have been spotted by the observant traveller and the odd SUP paddler, with the occasional surfing dolphin glimpsed too.

An Exmoor Adventure

Lynton and Lynmouth, with their famous funicular railway are a few miles further and Exmoor just few miles more; full of country pubs, iron age forts and scenery which is nothing but spectacular and second to none.

What kind of holiday are you looking to book? Beach bum, full on fun? Sit and relax or energised to the max? We built our Devon Holiday Parks to let you do whatever you like, whenever you like.

Woolacombe beach is supervised with RNLI Lifeguard services from Easter to October.
