Woolacombe Beach, Woolacombe, Devon. An epic, three-mile swathe of sand, which has cliffs at each end, rock pools, consistent surf and a buzzing little town. Water quality is excellent. Access to the beach is good, although Woolacombe village is invariably busy in the summer and the roads to and from it are seriously steep if you're cycling.
