Widemouth Bay

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.

The beach is a popular destination for surfers, but the rocks in the middle of the beach can pose some dangers to surfers at high tide. Lifeguards patrol the beach in peak, summer months, when dogs are not permitted on the north beach.

A variety of marine wildlife can be found in the rock pools dotted around the mile-long, sandy beach. Car parking is provided by the local council and there are numerous shops and cafs to visit.
