Crooklets Beach is a small, west-facing beach in northern Bude, on Cornwall’s north coast. At low tide, when Crooklets links with the neighbouring beaches of Summerleaze and Northcott Mouth, wider expanses of sand and rock pools are exposed. Over land, Crooklets is within walking distance of Bude’s town centre.
Four miles north of Bude, on the Cornwall and Devon border, Duckpool is a small, pebbly beach which reveals expanses of sand and rock pools at low tide. Duckpool is one of the most picturesque coves in the Bude area, bordered by steep cliffs and the woodland of Coombe Valley, with fine views of the north Cornwall coast.
Summerleaze Beach is the principal beach of Bude, Cornwall. Summerleaze is a north west-facing beach, which is particularly popular with families, who enjoy the wide, open stretches of sand within minutes of Bude town centre. A breakwater provides natural shelter for the beach.
