Woolacombe and Combesgate Beach

Woolacombe is an award winning beach, three miles of golden sands and crystal clear waters. With many activities to enjoy to include surfing, paragliding or riding. It’s a great family friendly beach where you can happily to stroll along the sand, get stuck in building sand castles, chill with an ice cream or swim through the waves. A fun place for all. Combesgate Beach is just around the coast and the waves can be smaller.
