About Bude Cornwall.

A popular tourist destination Bude is located on the Atlantic Heritage Coast of Cornwall, which as been designated an area of outstanding natural beauty. Popular with surfers and sun seekers alike Bude has two main beaches these are:

Summerleaze Beach:

Being the nearest beach to the town centre, Summerleaze beach can get busy during the summer months with both surfers and families. The beach is surrounded by dunes on one side and the Bude canal on the other. The beach has a wide expanse of good fine sand especially at low tide. There is parking available in the nearby Summerleaze car park.

Crooklets Beach:
At low tide the beach stretches from Summerleaze beach to Northcott mouth and is very popular with beginners and intermediate surfers alike. Way back in 1953 the beach was home to Britain's first life saving club and as such is sometimes referred to as the 'Bondi of Britain'.

Bude is also the terminus of ‘The Bude Canal’ which was built in the early 1820s to carry calcium rich sea sand used by farmers as fertiliser for the poor soil to be found further inland as well as other goods.

The town centre also offers a range of different shops to cater for all different tastes. Most of the shops are locally owned. Bude makes a great base to explore the dramatic scenery of the South West Coastal Path.
