Duckpool Beach in North Cornwall is a wild and untamed pebble and rock-lined beach with a sandy shoreline that’s exposed at low tide.
This stunning National Trust owned beach four miles north of Bude is where the beautiful wooded Coombe Valley meets the sea; its woodland covered in lichens whilst its floor is carpeted in maritime grasses and wild flowers. Here too, the spectacular 100-metre-high Steeple Point Cliff dominates the beach.
Anti-tank blocks installed before WW2 can be found scattered along the beach.
This spectacularly wild area of coast is notorious for shipwrecks and not suitable for swimming due to its dangerous currents.
There's a National Trust car park, free to members, No overnight camping allowed.
Dogs allowed all year round, but please keep under control.
