Backed by low cliffs and surrounded by fascinating rock formations, the wide sandy beach of Widemouth Bay gives way at low tide to a myriad of rock pools, ideal for families to explore. To the south, Black Rock rises out of the ocean, marking the beginning of the beach’s dog-friendly section.

One of Cornwall’s best loved holiday destinations, there are numerous accommodation options in the area, including holiday cottages in Bude and Widemouth Bay holiday cottages.

This lesser-known surf spot will surprise wave lovers – an excellent place for both beginner and experienced surfers. There are a number of surf schools and hire places to choose from. RNLI Lifeguards operate during peak periods of the year.
