Woolacombe is a
seaside resort on the coast of North Devon, England, which lies at
the mouth of a valley (or 'combe') in the parish of Mortehoe. The
beach is 3 miles (4.8 km) long, sandy, gently sloping and faces the
Atlantic Ocean near the western limit of the Bristol Channel. It is
a popular destination for surfing and family holidays and is part of
the North Devon Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The beach
is owned and run by Parkin Estates Ltd and has won several awards,
including the recent title of "Britain's Best Beach" in the "Coast
Magazine Awards 2012" but notably lost its Blue Flag status in 2012
due to water quality issues.
The winter population is very small (around 1,000), but during the
summer large numbers of people come to the village for their
holidays. Many are motivated to visit because of the excellent
surfing conditions found locally. There are many hotels, holiday
flats and bed and breakfast establishments, and most of the
entertainment opportunities are aimed at tourists. A
long-established attraction in the centre of the village was a crazy
golf course which featured North Devon landmarks for the holes, the
unique model buildings being constructed from the various types of
stone found in the local area. This attraction was demolished and
rebuilt as a pirate themed crazy golf course in 2010.
