The village of Woolacombe lies at the northern end of the beach, and is full of seaside shops, cafes, restaurants and B&B's. The Woolacombe Bay Hotel and Watersmeet Hotel probably offer the best accomodation in town, and the Red Barn pubs has the liveliest night life.
Woolacombe Village Beach is on the North Devon Heritage Coast.
