  • It depends which one you want to know about?

    Summerleaze Beach is very popular, mainly because it is less than five minutes’ walk from the centre of Bude. It also has a large sea pool nestled at the foot of the cliffs. Part man-made and part natural, the salt-water pool, cleaned daily by the tide, has enticed swimmers since it opened in 1930.

    Crooklets Beach is very popular with surfers and is home to the Bude Surf Life Saving Club. The beach has great facilities including a large car park, level access and viewing area, a play area, skate park, beach cafe, showers, amusements and pubs close by.

    Northcott Mouth is a rocky cove, but has a sandy beach when the tide is out. It's just to the north of Bude.

    Widemouth Bay is a very long open bay popular with families and surfers and at low tide there are hundreds of rock pools to explore. Situated just 3 miles south of Bude, it offers fantastic conditions to learn surfing or body-boarding, which is why many of the local surf schools are based there.
