Cornwall Council owned beach. Bounded by the Bude Canal on the southern end and sand dunes to the north. The town of Bude is situated behind the beach. The north end of the beach is rocky and the sea pool is hidden at high tide with rocks in the pool. There is a strong rip tide around the river area and the beach gets very crowded in the peak holiday season.
Large Car park at rear of beach off Summerleaze Crescent. Only 5 minutes walk from the town centre.
