"Sittin' on the dock of the bay"

Woolacombe

Woolacombe is a seaside resort on the coast of North Devon, England, which lies at the mouth of a valley (or 'combe') in the parish of Mortehoe. The beach is 3 miles (4.8 km) long, sandy, gently sloping and faces the Atlantic Ocean near the western limit of the Bristol Channel. It is a popular destination for surfing and family holidays and is part of the North Devon Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The beach is owned and run by Parkin Estates Ltd and has won several awards, including the recent title of "Britain's Best Beach" in the "Coast Magazine Awards 2012" but lost its Blue Flag status in 2012 due to water quality issues.
