Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use. Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.

An attractive golden sand and shingle beach set in a bay, half a mile from the main Woolacombe beach. Great for rock pooling, popular among surfers, with a good coastal walk toward Morthoe and recommended accomodation at the Waters Meet hotel on the headland.
