Things to do in North Cornwall
From sand castles to surf
Discover the best of North Cornwall
From Bude, Cornwall’s wild and beautiful heritage north coast stretches out over 60 miles before you. Once home to smugglers, this is now a surfer's paradise. But the mile-wide bays and sandy beaches are equally popular with summer sunbathers and winter dog walkers, with families and food lovers heading for the finest, freshest seafood in historic fishing ports like Padstow. There’s more to North Cornwall than its coastal hot spots - head inland from Burn Coastal Retreat and you’ll find bustling market towns, historic castles and charming country houses set against the rugged Bodmin Moor.
This beach is located just a short walk from Bude town centre with a large car park that leads directly down to the sand dunes. Its historic sea pool has enticed swimmers since 1930.
