Woolacombe Beach Apartment - Devon Beach Court

The (very) local beaches

Mortehoe beach (Grunta beach)

The Northernmost beach in Woolacombe is also the smallest, separated from the other beaches by a stone outcrop filled with rockpools, it’s accessed by a set of stairs leading up to Rockham.

Combesgate beach

The second furthest North beach is the larger Combesgate, a secluded cove accessible only at lower tides meaning you’ll be much more likely to find a quiet space to yourself to Rockpool or Surf the impressive swell.

Barricane beach

Accessed from the main road directly opposite the apartment, or from Combesgate beach is the increasingly famous Barricane Beach, a small bay nestled between dark rocky cliffs. At lower tides and in the evening you can enjoy a Sri Lankan curry with a beach towel.

Woolacombe beach

And finally the pièce de résistance, the award winning Woolacombe Beach, voted one of the best beaches in the world, and certainly one of the best in Britain! The beach sits between Baggy point and Morte Point and is a haven for families and surfers alike - it’s dune backed sands stretch for 3 miles and faces west for stunning sunsets and even better waves.
