    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 been awarded a regional Seaside Award.

    Summerleaze Beach has dog restrictions. Summerleaze beach allows dogs 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.
