- The Castle Bude is a heritage centre, gallery and restaurant. The building created by Sir Goldsworthy Gurney has been restored into a heritage centre, gallery and restaurant. This is a fine place to start your exploration of Bude, located in the center by the canal wharf and beaches. Learn about Bude and surrounding areas: early years, local crafts, shipwrecks and lifesaving.
- Wells beach combines a sand beach with a little town and fishing port, although the town name is Wells-Next-the-Sea it is nearly a mile from the open sea and beach. Wells beach is part of a long stretch of beach, joining Holkham and is backed by sand dunes and pine woods. You often have to walk some way to get to the sea but be careful as when the tide turns and starts to come in it can be very fast. Facilities at the beach include toilets, cafe/restaurant, shop, slipway, beach hut hire.
- Wookey Hole cave system has 25 chambers and was formed through erosion of the limestone hills by the River Axe. Before emerging at Wookey Hole the water enters underground streams and passes through other caves such as Swildon’s Hole and St Cuthbert’s Swallet. After resurging, the waters of the River Axe are used in a handmade paper mill, which began operations circa 1610, although a corn grinding mill operated there as early as 1086. The caves, at a constant temperature of 11 °C (52 °F), have been used by humans for around 50,000 years. The low temperature means that the caves can be used for maturing Cheddar cheese.
- The Lizard lifeboat station is launched from the boathouse down the slipway into the sea. The station features a funicular line to transport lifeboat crews from the boathouse to the clifftop station car park. The lifeboat station was opened here in 1961, the location was chosen because it was sufficiently protected to allow safe launching in all conditions. The old lifeboat station around the Lizard headland at Polpeor Cove was too exposed, making launching difficult and dangerous in certain conditions.
- Borth beach is sand with a pebble bank at the high tide mark. The beach is 3 miles long with rock pools and intersected by groynes that provide good natural windbreaks. Swimming and surfing is safe on Borth beach but if you walk up towards Ynyslas beach and the estuary then it becomes unsafe due to the currents. Skeletal stumps of oak, birch, willow, hazel and pine trees, remnants of the Forest of Borth, which was buried under peat, sand and saltwater more than 4,500 years ago, and can be best seen at low tide along the beach. Facilities include parking and lifeguards in the summer.
- Ryde Beach is a large sandy beach with fantastic facilities and clear water backed by a promenade. Behind the beach you have a large boating lake and all the amenities of Ryde. The beach is also known as Ryde East Beach but really is the main Ryde beach that offers a quality beach for families, surfers and bathers. It is a safe beach and you can enjoy the journey there on a catamaran or hovercraft if you just want to visit for the day from the mainland. There are also boat trips around the island and many water sports to choose from here including wind surfing, jet skiing and canoeing.
- Easdale Island near Oban in Argyll on the west coast of Scotland is one of the Slate Islands and is of historical interest. Easdale Island Folk Museum displays a range of topics from the slate industry, army volunteers, education, geology, boats, and entertainment. There are genealogical records for the Kilbrandon and Kilchattan parish as well as rent books, Masonic records, and a map of Easdale Island circa 1881. Image of Easdale Island by Graham Cole.
