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.

Summerleaze Beach in Bude is a wide sandy beach well-known for its river and large sea pool. Part natural part man-made, the seal pool was originally opened in 1930 and is replenished with fresh water at each high tide. Great for families, Summerleaze Beach offers plenty of space and is lifeguarded throughout the summer.

Children loved it safe and when tide was to far out you had the sea pool.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

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!)

Fantastic fresh locally caught seafood in modern restaurant in the most fabulous location just above the beach with great views.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The museum is set in the castle and offers an interesting insight into life in Bude, its varied geology, history and its progression from a port to most recently a surfing centre. Education facilities, a shop and restaurant are on site and the restaurant has stunning views.

An interesting visit and good place to go when the weather isn't great

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Set between Bude and Morwenstow, Sandymouth Beach takes in sweeping views of the coast. At low tide, it is possible to walk the two mile stretch leading towards Bude. If you want to enjoy a different perspective on the way back the coast path above the cliffs makes for a scenic route home. Looked after by the National Trust, the beach has a manned car park with lots of space. On the beach visitors can enjoy a tumbling waterfall and make use of the available facilities, including cafe, toilets and water sports equipment hire.

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)

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.
