Bude in North Cornwall

Bude is a small resort town and watering-place in Cornwall, England, UK, on the north coast at the mouth of the river Neet.

There are a number of good beaches in the Bude area, many of which offer good surfing conditions. The Bude Lifesaving Club was the founder club of British Surf Life Saving.

  1. Summerleaze and Crooklets beaches are both in the town.

  2. Widemouth bay is a few miles south of Bude and offers a long, wide sandy beach.

  3. Sandymouth Beach is owned by the National Trust, and has spectacular cliffs and rock formations with shingle below the cliffs and a large expanse of sand at low tide.

  4. Northcott Mouth beach is situated north of Bude.

The beaches around Bude are the main reason that the town is a huge tourist resort for all ages during the summer and is catching up with its southern neighbour Newquay.
