Woolacome is a beautiful part of North Devon and an ideal family holiday destination and it is no coincidence that Woolacombe holds the ‘England for Excellence Gold Award’ for family holidays. The beaches at Woolacombe are absolutely stunning and they go on for miles and miles.
If there was anything negative to say about the beaches at Woolacome it would be that you often have to walk out quite a way to reach the sea but that is only a minor point because what the beaches have to offer really is something else.
The beach itself stretches out for three miles and is always rated in the top 10 of any competition which compares beaches in the UK. It has won the Blue Flag award as well Premier Seaside beach awards for it’s cleanliness, water quality and superb facilities. There is a highly qualified life guard team which ensures everything runs smoothly and Woolacombe is also a main attraction for surfers who travel from all over the country to experience the waves and clean water.
It should be noted that you don’t have to be an expert surfer to enjoy the sea at Woolacombe, you can hire a surf or belly board at a reasonable price and join in the fun with the rest of them.
Woolacombe village can be found just a short walk away from the beach and there is everything that you will ever need there, from the well stocked surf shops to the great pubs and restaurants which are able to cater for any taste.
There are also several holiday camps which can be found on the hill down to the beach and as the standard of theses camps is very high they always prove to be extremely popular and the short walk down to the beach means that they are an ideal base for the visitors to Woolacombe.
