Crooklets is one of two beaches in the town of Bude. At low tide it joins Northcott to the north and Summerleaze to the south. Warning: Watch the tide if you wander onto another beach as you could find your way back to Crooklets is a long walk around the roads.
A large expanse of fine sand that grows as the tide recedes. Busy beach during the school summer holiday period. There is a promenade with beach huts along the back of the beach.
Crooklets is on the north side of Bude and can be accessed by a short walk over the Summerleaze Down or down Crooklets Road from the town centre.
