Perfect if you're looking for something a little different from the usual raucous hen night out. Woolacombe offers a far more relaxed and chilled out atmosphere than bigger cities which thrive on massive clubs and crowded bars. With a number of top local pubs and bars, Woolacombe is a great choice for girls who have been there, done the hardcore clubbing, got the t-shirt and spilled Jagerbombs all down it and now want to keep the hen night low key and relaxed.
Woolacombe is a serene seaside town during the daytime, full of happy families and leisurely surfers, but as soon as the sun goes down, Woolacombe lights up with party-seeking dancers and revellers who love to celebrate until the small hours! There are plenty of great party hotspots to get you going and, if you want to squeeze in a bit of glamour before heading out, then how about getting a glitzy limousine to pick you up straight from your hotel and drop you at one of the best restaurants in town? If you're in the market for a relaxed hen night which still packs a great punch when it comes to nightlife, then look no further than Woolacombe!
All of the best watering holes in this seaside resort are scattered over the beachfront, making ambling from bar to pub very easy, not to mention making for some breathtaking views to enjoy a drink in. Pubs are cosy and friendly and you'll always be met with a very warm welcome from the chilled out locals. The Tides Inn is a great place to start, offering up snacks and meals as well as all your favourite pub tipples in a fantastic location, or soak up the lively atmosphere at Bar Electric, a favourite amongst locals, surfers and tourists alike, for a good cold beer or cider and a warm welcome. The Jube is well known as a hidden gem right in the centre of Woolacombe village which offers pub favourites with a wonderful view and comfortable outside seating. Captain Jacks is also a firm favourite for a couple of relaxed drinks when you're ready to head off the beach and into the nightlife scene!
This beachside town on the North Devon coast is well known for its infectious holiday spirit and is always lively all summer long. It's been very popular with families since the Victorian era, so there's plenty going on in the evening outside of the local pubs and bars. Obviously, its glorious and wide sandy beaches are the main attraction, so be sure to take a stroll along the prom and a splash around the shore at night for a truly magical experience.
The village of Woolacombe is, in short, pretty small, so getting out and about is about as difficult as hopping over from beach to bar in your flip-flops!
Woolacombe is home to just one nightclub, but actually it's rather special, claiming to be the longest running in the UK, having opened back in 1967 - they must be doing something right! Opening their doors every summer, they welcome big DJs from all around the world and offer up a very wide ranging spectrum of music, from hip hop and reggae to funk and soul. As you'd probably expect, live music is much loved on the super laid back Devon coastline, and Woolacombe is no exception. Listen out for soulful beats and rocking bands all over the village and sample some of the best local talent.
If you're feeling brave, give a pint of Devon's traditional scrumpy or ‘cyder' a go. Well known for being a little rough around the edges, it's the local tipple of choice - but isn't for the faint of heart! Real ales and locally brewed beers also make for a great long drink after a warm day on the beach surfing or simply sunbathing. Acting as a base for American soldiers in world war two, The Red Barn is steeped in history and is a fantastic place to enjoy a couple of relaxed drinks - they specialise in local brews and serve up tasty nibbles too. When you want to try out something a little more stylish, The Bay Brasserie Bar located in the swanky Woolacombe Bay Hotel offers yummy cocktails in a flawless and modern clean seaside location with unrivalled views.
Surfing is hungry work, so its little wonder that the tiny village of Woolacombe is stuffed full of eateries offering up simple but delicious and filling fare, often made from high quality local ingredients to bolster its many holidaymakers and get them ready for the waves! Firstly, no trip to the Devon coast would be complete without a steaming hot portion of delicious fish and chips eaten on the beach as you watch the sun dissolve slowly into the sea. The Woolacombe Fryer is an unpretentious, high quality chip shop which puts ingredients first and serves up dish after dish of this great British traditional meal all year round. If you fancy something a little different however, Woolacombe can deliver too - hit up surf-themed Sophia's Tapas Bar and Bistro for some flavoursome Spanish cuisine and drinks. When you and the girls are by the seaside, you can hardly pass up a yummy ice cream, so make sure you check out Sea Breeze for a creamy coffee and a classic 99 too.
