Woolacombe Beach is more than two miles of golden sand backed by sandy hills and the Woolacombe Downs. The village of Woolacombe lies at the northern end of the beach. Speed boats and jet skis are prohibited, therefore offering superb facilities for swimming, surfing, windsurfing, sailing and sea canoeing.
