Summerleaze Beach, Bude

4.8
#1 of 7 in Beaches in Bude-Stratton
Summerleaze Beach is Bude’s central hub of sand, surf and sun, and it’s the first port of call for many visitors.

Clean, safe and easy on the eye, Summerleaze Beach is a big hit with surfers, beach bums and families. However, it is the sheer variety of activities that mark Summerleaze as arguably the best beach in Cornwall for outdoor pursuits and water sports.

There are superb local surf schools, for example, but you could also try kayaking, sea fishing or sample the thrills of climbing or coasteering with friendly professionals.

Summerleaze Beach also has features that show why Bude is popular for family friendly and disability friendly holidays. Summerleaze offers level access and a flat viewing area, for example, while a cute, sheltered sea pool is ideal for young ones to have a salt water dip. For a serious spot of loafing, there are also cute beach huts to hire.

Brand new beach huts were built in 2016. Book via http://www.visitbude.info/beach-lovers/hire-a-beach-hut/
