Lee Bay Beach
Something of a hidden gem on the secluded coast between Ilfracombe and Woolacombe.
Any time except low tide you won’t find much in the way of sand at Lee Bay. You will find lots of rocks which are home to any number of rock pools, caves and formations - all of which make for some great exploring.
The relatively shelter of the cove make it a good spot for stand up paddleboards and canoes. At high tide it is also good for snorkelling, although swimming isn’t recommended due to the absence of lifeguards and strong currents.
Somewhat off the beaten track Lee Bay beach isn’t the easiest place to get to with winding narrow lanes to navigate and limited parking. On the plus side, this tends to keep things quiet.
