The beach is best enjoyed from the shore though, as swimming is advised against due to strong currents. No lifeguards are present.

Visit this unspoiled beach and fall in love with the breathtaking views. If you head to Northcott Mouth Beach at low tide you may be able to see the remnants of the steamship ‘Belem’ which ran aground here in 1917. At high tide, you can take in the stunning panoramas from the clifftops surrounding the beach. A secluded haven as it is, there are no facilities nearby.

Excellent beach

A wonderful beach and much quieter than Bude. An added bonus is the Rustic Tea Garden which is a lovely cafe just behind the beach. You can eat in their lovely garden or take away back to the beach. Great hot dogs, jacket potatoes and very yummy cakes.

Crooklets is an expansive sandy beach that joins up with neighbouring Summerleaze and Northcott Mouth at low tide. Popular with families and lifeguarded from May to September, it has been known to get quite busy in the summer. Visitors can make use of the array of facilities available at Crooklets, including a car park, children's play area and skate park, eateries, showers and more.

Great beach

As noted before this is national trust so free parking if you are a member or £4.50 for the day. It's a short walk down a steep incline past a decent cafe and shop and clean loos. It's a rocky beach at high tide but a fantastic sandy beach at low tide- you get lots of lovely sandy pools which are perfect for toddlers. It's also great for crabbing at low and high tide. Also has life guards. Surf was decent enough for body boarding. Overall great beach and not hugely busy when we were there ( late August)

August 2012

This is a lovely beach for both children and (novice in our case) surfers. The path down from the car park is steep but worth it. At the bottom you have a bit of a scramble over big pebbles to reach the sand but once there it's great. Watch out for the tide coming in and be ready to move back quickly! The car park charge was £4.50 but that let you stay all day. There is a nice cafe with outdoor seating and clean public loos. We spent all our beach days here.

Life's a Beach (4 ¼ miles)

Not just a beach cafe but also an ice cream parlour and beach shop. The cafe turns into a restaurant in the evening where local seafood is a speciality. Try to dine on the veranda overlooking Summerleaze, wonderful during the light summer evenings.

Excellent food, lovely location

Really nice atmosphere - quite casual at lunch, but a little more sophisticated in the evenings. Really good food - exceeds expectations of a beach-side cafe!

Good food, reasonably priced

We popped in in the middle of February after a good walk on the beach. The staff were welcoming and the food perfectly adequate (nice Cheesy Chips!)
