Saltrock beaches are among the best in the world!

Woolacombe

Woolacombe has been voted the best beach in the UK and 4th in Europe according to reviewers on travel site TripAdvisor, raising eyebrows globally and giving holiday makers food for thought as they book this year’s holidays.

Matt Levick, Manager of Saltrock Woolacombe is delighted but not surprised. “Woolacombe is an awesome beach,” he says. “It’s beautiful, it’s clean and it stretches for miles so there’s plenty of room for everyone. There is excellent surf but its also safe for bathing, the water’s clean, there are rockpools of the kids to play in and stunning dunes behind. There’s loads to do in Woolacombe, and of course the shops are excellent! What more can you ask for?”

Charlie from the Woolacombe team agrees. ‘There isn’t anywhere else you’d rather be,” she says. “With endless sands, sea and beautiful people, what more could you want!”

Woolacombe was voted best beach in the UK, 4th in Europe and 13th in the world. Not a bad result for a little seaside village in North Devon.

Saltrock has stores in 3 more of the top British beaches. Porthminster Beach in St Ives, Fistral Beach in Newquay and Hengistbury Head in Bournemouth all bagged places in the list of Top 10 British Beaches.

Weymouth Beach in Dorset and Sandbanks in Poole also made the top 10 and Saltrock stores will open in both locations in the next few months.

“We’re delighted that so many beaches close to Saltrock’s heart feature in the TripAdvisor list,” says Saltrock spokesperson Katie Goodfellow. “With hundreds of thousands of wonderful beaches around the world this is a great opportunity to showcase these great British beaches and our magnificent coastline.”

Saltrock to open a store in Merlin’s Walk Shopping Centre, Carmarthen

 

Merlin's Walk Shopping Centre in Carmarthen


Our exciting expansion continues with a new store planned in the bustling Welsh town of Carmarthen.

The store will open in Merlin’s Walk Shopping Centre and will offer the people of Carmarthen a stunning range of Saltrock surf and leisurewear for all the family at affordable prices.

And there’s not too long to wait – the doors open on Saturday 14th March.

Merlin’s Walk shopping centre is designed to reflect the character and historic roots of Carmarthen which claims to be the oldest and once biggest town in Wales. Legend has it that Merlin was born on the site of the old town; hence the present-day annual Merlin Festival celebrations and the 11 ft statue of Merlin the Wizard which stands as the centerpiece to the shopping centre.

With a reputation as a great value centre it has more than 20 stores offering a wide variety of products, and we’re confident that Saltrock’s distinctive lifestyle clothing and accessories will both complement existing stores and attract new shoppers to the centre.

Come along to opening day and enjoy special offers and goody bags

He adds, “It was great to receive such a warm welcome. I was able to chat to quite a few customers which was great, the majority were local people and everyone was so positive about the store and the product. It’s nice to hear that people are so pleased to see the brand come to Tenby and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who came along.”

“We’ve got a busy year ahead of us with lots more new stores opening across the country,” he concludes. “If they’re all as successful as Tenby we’ll be very happy.”

Saltrock Tenby in St George’s Street is the 25th Saltrock store to open and takes our tally of Welsh stores to three.
