Grunta Beach, Woolacombe

#5 of 6 in Parks in Woolacombe
Beach · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Embrace gusty Atlantic winds while exploring the small, sandy cove at Grunta Beach. Sitting on the rugged North Devon coastline, this small bay is best explored during low tide, when an abundance of rock pools uncover themselves. Don’t forget your fishing net and bucket to analyze your discoveries. If you’re feeling brave, immerse yourself in the cold water and try out body-boarding or surfing on the rolling waves. The bay sits at the bottom of a steep set of uneven stairs (at the top of which you'll also find bathroom facilities), making accessibility for those in wheelchairs or with strollers limited. You won’t find any shops or restaurants at this bay, so pack some snacks and drinks.

  • walked on the esplanade to the different parts of Woolacombe bay - this was one of them. Positives: Lovely views, benches, grassed area and beach.  more »
  • Great for finding driftwood, pebbles and taking scenic photographs. Wonder recommend if you struggle walking or have problems with your ankles/legs as the rocks are quite difficult to walk on and the stair way down to the beach isn't particularly sturdy.
  • So clean with interesting rock formations. Very difficult to access. No facilities.
