Wonderful Widemouth Bay is a long, open and sandy bay, close to the undulating south west coast path. Separate from, but advantageously close to, Bude with all its facilities, this family-friendly bay is perfect for surfing, bodyboarding, sunbathing or even a lovely coastal walk with phenomenal views. This characterful little coastal community has something for everyone, with pretty amazing sunsets, too.
For a spectacular sweep of sandy beach with handy beachside parking, Widemouth Bay is hard to beat; it is a wonderful getaway for all age groups.
When the sun is shining, it is a breath-taking place to spend your day. Try a stretch of coast path walk along dramatically eroded cliffs (be careful to stick to the paths and keep dogs on leads), play on the sandy flat beach at low tide, and check for wildlife among the plethora of rock pools in the rockier parts of the shoreline. There is something for every beach-lover here.
Lifeguarded during high season, the sea is of excellent water quality, perfect for water sports but equally equipped for a gentle paddling session with small children. In winter, the exposed waves can be a little wild, the elements providing for superb storm-watching, when the beaches are excellent for dog-walking.
Add facilities such as a pub, hotel bars and restaurants, cafes, a charming tearoom, and surf schools all at hand – but set back from the unspoiled beach – and you have the ideal place to stay for an active holiday in the fresh Cornish air.
The sunsets here are spectacular, the vibe calming and restful with wonderful waves. Panoramic views are yours from on high. Drive along the coast road to be prepared to be wowed as you cast your eyes down over the beautiful bay that is Widemouth.
