Crackington Haven is a lovely shingle cove dominated by majestic cliffs and offering a stretch of golden sand along with many rock pools when the tide is out.  Suitable for swimming and surfing the water quality is routinely checked.

Lifeguard cover from the 7th of July until the 2nd of September (2018).

Surfing Info: Usually smaller (2ft) than Widemouth, so good on big days. Rights and lefts peeling into the rip. Waves can be steep at low tide (closeout) or spilling at mid tide, breaking on reef or sand.  Suitable for beginners through to experienced surfers taking account of dangerous rocks left and right, experienced surfers can use river to enter water.  Tides: Surfable at Mid tide only. Wind: E/SE offshore.

Please note: Dogs are welcome on this beach except between Easter Sunday and 30 September when a seasonal dog ban is in place (2018).
