About Us

If you're looking for a pleasant, idyllic spot for somewhere to relax then Watcombe is the beach for you, surrounded by cliffs and wooded hillsides. The steep path that leads down to the beach passes through mature woodland and opens out to reveal a small cove with spectacular scenery. It has lifebuoys, a cafe and toilets which are open from May till September, and a promenade. The nearest pay and display car park is just over five minutes walk away.

Difficult, the path from the car park to the café and beach is very steep.

Dogs are welcome all year round.
