At one end of Woolacombe's beach in summer are swing boats and beach huts for hire, while further along it is just wide, clean stretches of beautiful sand, excellent for sandcastle building which is also dog friendly all year round. It's the perfect seaside destination for families and surfers. There's so much to be done, from Crazy Golf and pitch-and-putt to a walk along the breath-taking South West Coastal Footpath. Most of the holiday cottages in Woolacombe, being west facing, means they enjoy not only sea views, but beautiful sunsets over the Atlantic Ocean.
There's more to Woolacombe than just Woolacombe Beach (and Putsborough Sands at the far end). To the East lie the small coves of Watergate Bay and Barricane Beach (overlooked by luxury beach apartments) with a mixture of sand, rocks and lovely rock pools. In summer, the cafe above Barricane Beach sells Sri Lankan Curries on the beach: bring your chairs and candelabra! Beyond that lies the little village of Mortehoe with two excellent pubs and a lovely walk around Morte Point peninsula - watch Atlantic rollers crash on to the rocky shores below.
There are also some lovely seaside holiday cottages and beach apartments along the coast road with superb sea views between Woolacombe and Mortehoe for those who would like to be just outside the bustle of Woolacombe, but near enough to get to the beach in a matter of minutes from their holiday cottage. The South West Coast Path runs along the coast offering lovely walks in the direction of Ilfracombe to the East and to Croyde Bay to the west. A short drive to the east lies the Exmoor National Park - a wonderland for walks across heather-clad moorland, or explore riverside trails along idyllic wooded valleys.
