Grunta Beach, Mortehoe

4.6
#5 of 6 in Parks in Woolacombe
Embrace gusty Atlantic winds while exploring the small, sandy cove at Grunta Beach. Sitting on the rugged North Devon coastline, this small bay is best explored during low tide, when an abundance of rock pools uncover themselves. Don’t forget your fishing net and bucket to analyze your discoveries. If you’re feeling brave, immerse yourself in the cold water and try out body-boarding or surfing on the rolling waves. The bay sits at the bottom of a steep set of uneven stairs (at the top of which you'll also find bathroom facilities), making accessibility for those in wheelchairs or with strollers limited. You won’t find any shops or restaurants at this bay, so pack some snacks and drinks. Our Woolacombe trip itinerary planning tool makes visiting Grunta Beach and other Woolacombe attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
