uk’s best beach retains title for second year running

This picturesque, rolling stretch of golden sand that stretches for as far as the eye can see, encompassed by unsurpassed countryside and delicious, enticing blue waters, is a place called Woolacombe. If you didn’t already know, it’s a rather popular tourist destination, and has just been voted the number one beach in the country for a second year running. And with good reason!

Woolacombe Beach, North Devon

Woolacombe beach in Devon has been named by travellers as the UK’s best beach for the second year in a row by TripAdvisor, and the three-mile stretch of sand, which lies between Morte Point and Baggy Point, held on to the top spot because of its rave reviews and ratings.


The travel website described Woolacombe as having “rolling, unbroken surf which makes it the ideal hotspot for surfers”.


“The sheer length of the beach means that there is no shortage of sand to sit down and relax on during the busy summer months.”


One reviewer said they had first visited in 1950, adding: “I am still coming here and although there are a lot more people now, it is still possibly one of the best beaches in Britain, the clean sand, beach huts for hire, three miles to walk the length and fantastic clifftop walks make this a very special place.”
