The Strangles is a west-facing beach on the north Cornwall coast. It is a 1½ mile long, sand, shingle and rock beach between Tintagel and Bude. Due to the difficulty of access from the high cliffs backing the beach, it is normally very quiet.
There are no toilet facilities, shops or cafés at The Strangles beach, and limited parking options. The nearest town in which facilities can be found is Crackington Haven, around 2 miles from the Strangles by road.
Crackington Haven holiday cottages provide the nearest self catering holiday options. Further afield, self catering accommodation is also available in Boscastle (5 miles by road), Widemouth Bay (7 miles), Tintagel (8 miles) and Bude (11 miles) holiday cottages.
Access to the beach is extremely difficult, via cliffs which climb in excess of 700 feet. The dangerous waters are unsuitable for swimming.
