Putsborough beach is an artificial term for the southern part of Woolacombe Sands, past the cliffs just before Black Rock.
The beach is privately owned and the car park is reached by a narrow road with passing places. Above the beach are a small caravan site, and beach shop. There are several cottages and apartments available to rent.
The surf works at all tide stages but mid to high tend to have an edge. It is the only beach in the area that benefits from some protection from prevailing South/Southwesterly winds, thanks to Baggy Point headland. Peaks (of waves) are scattered all along its length. It has fairly slow waves which are excellent for beginners. The sandy beach has some rocky outcrops which provide paddling pools.
