In the south part of the UK, Devon’s Woolacombe beach was recently voted as being the most beautiful beach in England. While the weather here doesn’t typically make Woolacombe beach the best travel destination for topping up your tan, the scenic coastlines are great for coastal walks and surfing. Woolacombe itself is a busy and vibrant town filled with plenty of traditional English pubs and restaurants.
The best things to do in Woolacombe include taking a trip to nearby Lundy Island via MS Oldenburg. The journey across to the island is an experience in itself, providing some of the best views of the Devonshire coastline. Once on the island, travelers can explore, watch the local birds and wildlife, and order some fish and chips in a local English tavern. Woolacombe beach, Barricane beach and Morte Point all offer fun beach experiences for all the family.
The town of Woolacombe itself is small and compact, and everything can be reached within 10 minutes or so of walking. Many accommodation choices are available close to Barricane and Grunta beaches -- whether you prefer luxury resort hotels, glamping or roughing it up at a campsite. From here, travelers can wake up to the views of the sea.
Summer is the best time to visit Woolacombe -- between the months of June and August.
