Woolacombe, one of North Devon
‘s most famous surf spots, has a nice regular set perfect for beginners, intermediates and longboarders. Of course, it can get crowded here, but the atmosphere is generally relaxed, and there are lifeguards patrolling the beach throughout the summer. Even when the waves here aren’t big, they are definitely fun. If you venture around the rocky point to Combesgate
, there are fewer people and the opportunity for some pretty epic barrels. The catch here is that there are more rocks and a strong rip, so best left to the experienced surfer, and the best waves are at mid-tide. The hanging surfboards and beachy aesthetic of this two-person flat
say all you need to know about its hosts. There’s even a secure space at the apartment’s entrance built specifically to store surfboards, wet-suits and any other beach equipment. What more could you need?
