Located between Woolacombe and Mortehoe, Barricane is often called Shell Beach owing to the beach being made up of shingle and shells - many of which are not native to this country. There are plenty of good rockpools here amongst the flat rocks at low tide.
There is a small cafe at Barricane Beach serving Sri Lankan curries which are perfect at sunset!
"I have been coming to Woolacombe for over 40 years and so would notice the changes over this time. Fortunately it's one of those seaside places where time stood still! Barricane Beach being one of them. It's a small shingle beach in a lovely cove with plenty of shelter and safe swimming."
2 Miles to the West of Ilfracombe is Lee Bay a charming sand and shingle beach backing onto an equally charming village. The bay is flanked on either side by an imposing rocky coastline. Set in a wooded combe which is sometimes referred to as "Fuchsia Valley" Lee Bay has no problem living up to it's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty status.
