Shell beach
Sep 2021
A small beach, perfect for a paddle or a roam around the rocks looking for shells. At low-tide you can walk around to the next beach along at Combesgate.

A fabulous little cove, with so many tiny shells and a great place for exploring. We didn't manage to taste then cafés delights but have heard the evening curries are second to none! They smelt incredible.
Highly recommend a visit to this beach.

Barricane beach - sunset and spices
Jun 2021 • Family
Sri Lankan curry on a beach with a sunset.
Order then wait 15 mins..maybe skim stones whilst waiting.
What’s not to like?
Can really recommend this experience.An idyllic ending to a busy day on the beach.
Remember to bring cash..about 50 for 4.

Beautiful quieter beach, great for rockpooling
Jun 2021
The beach is not as soft sand as it's neighbour - leave sandcastle building for the Woolacombe beach sands, but you'll have so much fun on this small secluded beach with it's own little cafe (cash only!) and amazing rocks and rock pools. It's a steep but almost step free walk down from the cliff top/parking on the road. The only thing it lacks is a toilet! It's a real "bring what you need, take your rubbish with you" kind of beach with limitless natural beauty. Locals are friendly, too!

Beautiful cove

As children we used to sit with our mom and dad on this cracking beach and sift through the sand to find the most exquisite tiny shells - still do it to this day. Love it.

A Little Piece of Heaven in North Devon
Sep 2020
Living locally, we actually always make a beeline for Barricane Beach rather than Woolacombe as always a little too busy for us, even before current COVID19 time. It used to be a little secret but now with the popularity of Sumeth and Stacey's Sri Lankan curries on warm spring/summer evenings, it has been 'discovered' and we're happy to share with everyone. It is a mark of spring arriving and summer departing when the little Barricane Beach Cafe is winched on and off its hardstanding by crane and we measure our summers by it. During the day they sell the usual cafe fare but in the evenings Sri Lankan curries which are currently takeaway only but usually served on a plate with proper knives and forks and we take picnic blankets, couple of bottles of something nice and watch the spectacular sunsets after a swim in the 'Barricane Lagoon' as the tide comes in. Just be aware that the cafe does not take cards as there is no signal down there but CASH ONLY and has been for years. As it is sheltered, it is wonderful for an evening swim after a tiring day at work. This is, without a doubt, our favourite special place and if you spend the day on the beach, there are toilets up near Watersmeet Hotel just a few minutes walk away. This is not a sandy beach but once the tide is down, you can walk around to the right to Coombesgate beach which is wide and sandy and never busy even in summer 2020! The benefit of this beach being not sandy is the various exotic shells and seaglass that can be found on each tide plus the rock pools are fantastic including some really deep sea pools with a cock crab or two living in them. Perfect.

Little beach

This is probably my most favourite beach!
It is picturesque and has a lovely atmosphere.. people are drawn here not only in the day, but in the evening too. This is partially due to the cafe serving delicious Malaysian curry on certain evenings, but also to just watch the sun go down.
The cafe serves lunchtime food, drink and ice creams among other things. There are toilets not too far away which are on the main road by a bus stop as you head towards Mortehoe - prob about 5 min walk. I must mention that this is not a sandy beach and some people benefit from wearing beach shoes.
Our children have spent hours in the rock pools, collecting the tiny shells and in the sea.
Definitely a beach to try out and only a short walk out of the main Woolacombe Bay Area.
