Woolacombe Sands Surfing Lessons

Woolacombe beach has two miles of magnificent golden sand backed by sandy hills and the Woolacombe Downs, and is a popular favourite with families, especially in the summer months. Facilities include huts and deckchair hire and a lifeguard service. Speedboats and jet skis are prohibited, but there are excellent facilities for surfing, windsurfing and canoeing.

Surfing at Woolacombe Sands
With some of the best Atlantic breaks Woolacombe beach is popular with surfers of all ages and abilities from beginners to the experienced long boarding locals- but even they keep out when the huge winter waves pound in. Woolacombe has lots of shops where you can hire a board and a wetsuit.
