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.
