Great in winter when the sea is calm the emits have gone.Close to all amenities and a lovely sandy beach for the family to play, eat or swim. Please take your rubbish home.

Beautiful safe beach away from the crowds of Bude. Easy parking, mix of pebbles and sand with good rockpools and some nice cliffs.

So glad we found this gem - plenty of parking, sandy beach with the added bonus of the man made sea pool which my daughter loved! Its a long way to walk to the toilets though and I think that would be my only negative
