Three great beaches near Bude
Summerleaze and Crooklets beaches in Bude are great, and the Sea Pool is a unique attraction.
But if you want something a bit different, try these three:
Just south of Bude, a beautiful sweeping bay with lots of sand, great for surfing, rockpooling, or just lying on the sand. Cafes, toilets, lifeguards and surf school.
North of Bude, lots of sand at low tide, when the beach stretches all the way down to Bude. National Trust car park, cafe and toilets, lifeguards and surf school.
Speke's Mill Mouth
Glorious get-away-from-it-all beach accessed from Hartland Quay, where there are toilets and the Hartland Quay Hotel. After a beautiful 20 minute walk Spekes' Mill waterfall cascades 48m down to the beach- luckily there are steps! Very peaceful, and absolutely stunning.
