This is a popular beaches in north Cornwall for families and watersports enthusiasts. At mid to low water huge expanses of sand extend south to Bude and north to Duckpool. At high water the sand is covered and the only exposed part of the beach consists of large pebbles so an understanding of tide times is important for your enjoyment and safety. The beach is open to the Atlantic and the breaking rollers can provide great surfing and bass fishing.
Lifeguards: present in season.
Dogs: allowed on the beach all year.
