Why not check other beaches nearby as we have no beaches around Bude, 215 beaches in Cornwall, or check our list of Cornwall Dog Friendly Beaches.

Water samples are taken at regular intervals during the bathing season and at the end of the season the water quality is classified as:
  • Excellent: the highest classification meaning the water is cleanest
  • Good: generally good water quality
  • Sufficient: meets minimum standards
  • Poor: You are advised not to swim. The beach will stay open and an action plan should be in place to improve the water quality.
