Woolacombe Sands

Woolacombe Sands, Devon

No beach is more epic at low tide than Woolocombe Sands. Bookended by headlands, the vast strand divides the family resort of Woolacombe, at the northern end, and Putsborough, at the opposite end. Between them are 21⁄2 miles of golden Blue Flag-quality sand. It's a small wonder the US army practised D-Day landings here in 1944. There are car parks at each end – ‘Puts’ is accessed via Croyde, and the Marine Drive car park outside Woolacombe provides easy access to the centre. In Woolacombe check out the sheltered mini bay of Barricane Beach, with its finely crushed shells and café that serves snacks by day and Sri Lankan grub at night.
