Crooklets Beach

A short walk from Bude town centre along the coast path (5 mins). Crooklets beach is adjacent to Summerleaze Beach, just past the open air sea pool. Although a little pebbly and rocky at the top, Crooklets Beach offers a huge expanse of golden sand once the tide is out.

It is very popular with surfers and also home to the Bude Surf Life Saving (Bude SLSC) Clubhouse. The Bude SLSC holds surf life-saving demonstrations on Crooklets Beach every Tuesday evening (6.30pm) during the summer and they are well worth a visit!
