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.

Absolutely lovely place. Owner telephoned me as we were arriving late and the reception shuts at 5, telephoned with instructions. Very polite, helpful. Lovely clean site. Shower and toilet both exceptional, one of the best facilities that we have been to. Will definitely visit again

My family took me on a holiday here this year and I found that it was brilliant and full of natural environment and with good facilities they provide there. Hope to go there again!
