About Bude

North Cornwall’s beaches are famous for their haunting beauty and those in the Bude area are no exception. Vast expanses of clean, golden, sandy beaches, often backed by rugged cliffs, have captivated many a visitor’s imagination over the centuries. No matter whether the sea is calm and gentle, or raging with angry waves and white foam, her majestic beauty will always add to that romantic feel of our shores.

Bude has six beautiful beaches and was the sunniest place in the UK in 2013.

Bude is home of the much loved Sea Pool, created in the 1930s to provide a haven for safe swimming for the people of the town and the thousands of people who visit it each year. The pool nestles under the cliffs on the north Cornwall coast and is topped up twice a day by the waves of the Atlantic. On a summer’s day the sprawling, sparkling expanse of the Sea Pool offers a blissful opportunity to escape from modern life and to laze, splash or bathe in calm sea water. It is a rare kind of construction: partially man-made and in harmony with the natural environment. Bude Sea Pool provides a precious opportunity to enjoy a unique experience, close to the ferocity of the natural environment but sheltered from its extreme effects.
