Barricane Beach

Barricane Beach

 

Barricane beach offers a picturesque and secluded spot, tucked away in between the rocks. It is famous for it'd tiny cowries and other exotic sea shells, rarely found on her larger neighbour Woolacombe beach. These shells travel along the Atlantic jet stream, swept from the shore of a Caribbean island thousands of miles away across the Atlantic and then to be dropped in near-perfect condition in this tiny little inlet on the North Devon coast.

The best pickings for shell seekers can be after large storms.

Around a half a mile from the main Woolacombe beach, Barricane is ideal for rock pooling, sun bathing and taking a dip in the sea.

 


Just stayed there for a long weekend, and I have to say that it's the best campsite that we have ever stayed on. Fab views of the coast and surrounding countryside. All the staff we met were very friendly and helpful. And to top it off the facilities are brill.

Fab family shower rooms with under floor heating, which were well cared for at all times. This is the first time in all our years of camping that we have looked forward to having a shower rather than dreading it!

We will definitely be going back next year. :-)

Friendly and Naturally Spacious

We stayed here with a VW Campervan for a few days surf trip. The people that run the place are nice and friendly. We arrived late and were able to park and stay on the grounds before finding our pitch the next day. The shower rooms and toilet facilities were excellent - nice, roomy and warm showers. And leaving for the day and coming back was easy-going. Great times.
