Northcott Mouth Beach
A mixture of pebbles and sand. Large areas of sand at low tide and a National Trust beach.
At low tide, the wreck of the SS Belem can be seen. Wrecked in November 1917, the propeller shaft was salvaged and used as metal support for Barrel Rock at the end of Bude Breakwater. There is a stream that runs over the beach along with the rock pools that kids love.
- Access from the National Trust Car Park, short descent on road to the beach.
- Amenities: National Trust owned car park close by with toilets and a caravan-cafe open during holiday season only.
- Dogs: Dog-friendly beach.
- Lifeguard service: Lifeguards on this beach July 4th – September 6th 2009.
