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. Our Woolacombe trip itinerary planning tool makes visiting Grunta Beach and other Woolacombe attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
Grunta Beach reviews
This is a small beach, but really beautiful and avoids the crowds. The route down to it is steep and if you have children or a dog it can be a little tricky. Well worth the effort. Watch out for the..... more »
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.
