Around Bude

The 6 Glorious Beaches on our doorstep, Crooklets, Summerleaze, Northcott, Sandymouth, Duckpool and Widemouth, for bathing, rock pooling, scrambling, fishing, crabbing, exploring, body boarding, surfing, walking, running and horse riding.  

 

Bring your wellies, your swimmers, your wet weather gear, your bobble hat or your sun screen, whatever the weather there really is something for everyone here.

And don't forget Bude's Christmas Day Swim every year, raising funds for the Surf life saving club.  Rules are shoulders under and no wetsuits...would you dare?????  Warm yourself in the hot tub after, you'll have earned it!

20 minutes drive up/down the coast you'll find Hartland Quay, Tintagel, Boscastle and some little gems in between such as Trebarwith Strands if you follow the coast road between Bude and Camelford.

If you're coming for the surf check out the tide timetable here and explore options for board and wetsuit hire with Bude Surf Cabin and Zuma Jay.
