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.
Dogs allowed although in the summer must be kept on leads.
