Northcott Mouth Beach
Rugged and beautiful, Northcott Mouth is a rocky cove on the north coast that reveals a sandy shore and scattered rock pools at low tide, overlooked by untamed Cornish wildflower-topped cliffs.
Children will delight in the little stream crossing the beach and the rock pools, while surfers will enjoy the waves created by rocky reefs offshore. The National Trust have a small car park adjacent to the beach.
Northcott Mouth is steeped in history, with nearby Bronze Age burial chambers found at Maer Cliff, and the wreck of the SS Belem, which can be seen at low tide. Wrecked in November 1917, the propeller shaft was salvaged and used as a metal support for Barrel Rock at the end of Bude Breakwater.
There are no toilet facilities.
In the summer months, there is a delightful tea caravan with rustic garden set back from the beach.
Lifeguard Cover is available in summer months.
Dogs are welcome.
