  • Summerleaze beach is located within a short walk of Bude town centre making it a very popular family sandy beach. However, as it is so large at low tide it never feels over crowded.

    Summerleaze beach has on one side a large breakwater complete with tower protecting a small harbour and the mouth of the Bude canal with its massive lock gates. On the opposite side of the beach there’s a sea-water bathing pool.

    Backing onto the beach are grassy downs and the River Neet.

    Large car park with easy access, toilets, cafe, lifeguards in the summer and Bude town centre a short 5 minute walk.

    Summerleaze Beach has dog restrictions. Dogs allowed although in the summer must be kept on leads.

    1. Anonymous Summerleaze Beach
      Overall Rating:

      Great family beach!
      We found this a great family beach. You can park next to the beach and you are also next to the town. This makes it very easy to drop you beach stuff off at the car and hit a cafe or restaurant. You also have the endless number of surf shops to browse.
      Will come again and recommend to anyone.
