Woolacombe is a seaside resort on the coast of North Devon, England, which lies at the mouth of a valley (or 'combe'). The beach is 2.5 miles long, sandy and gently sloping. The beach has Blue Flag and Premier Seaside Beach awards for its cleanliness, water quality and facilities. It is a popular destination for surfing, and there are many establishments offering tuition and equipment hire. The waves are gentle when the tide is out and are more vigorous when the tide is in.
There are Woolacombe apartments to stay in, but for the best holiday try staying in Ilfracombe where the best pubs and restaurants are.

Activities for you whether you're staying in a Woolacombe or anywhere in North DevonThe area is well served by transport in relation to its neighbours to the east and west, Torridge and West Somerset. The rump of the post-Beeching railway network has left a branch line to Exeter. The region is linked by three A roads. The primary link is the A361 (known locally as the Link Road) which was constructed between 1986 and 1989. It heads north-west from the M5 motorway, past South Molton, to Barnstaple, with the classification continuing then northwards along older roads to Ilfracombe. The modern Link Road continues westwards from Barnstaple as the A39 where it is designated the Atlantic Highway. The eastern section of the A39 links Barnstaple to Lynton, then traverses the northern coastal hills of Exmoor into Somerset.
The other two A roads are the A399, a minor local route between Ilfracombe and South Molton (used as a de facto Barnstaple-bypass to Woolacombe), and the A377, which is the main road between Barnstaple and the county town of Devon, Exeter.
Due to significant peak time traffic delays in Barnstaple, coupled
with severe congestion at both peak and non-peak times in the summer
when tourist traffic is at its busiest, the Barnstaple Western Bypass has been opened.
