Woolacombe - Village Beach

Woolacombe, Devon

Woolacombe Village Beach is a two and a quarter mile stretch of golden sand backed by sandy hills and the Woolacombe Downs. The village of Woolacombe lies at the northern end of the beach, and is full of seaside shops, cafes, restaurants and B&B's. The Woolacombe Bay Hotel and Watersmeet Hotel probably offer the best accomodation in town, and the Red Barn pubs has the liveliest night life.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point (Ilfracombe) and may not be accurate for this beach. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use.

Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
