Sandymouth Beach is owned by the National Trust and lies a short distance from Bude on the north coast of Cornwall.
This large, mainly pebble beach is totally transformed at low tide when the sea reveals a vast quantity of sand just perfect for family days out. The low tide not only exposes a large sandy expanse but also reveals numerous rock pools. Filled with all sorts of sea creatures, the rock pools provide the perfect place for children to play and explore.
One of the great things about this stretch of coastline is that low tide allows you to walk as far as the eye can see. To the south, you can walk to Northcott Mouth, Crooklets Beach and even to Bude itself.
The beach is also popular with surfers of varying abilities, although care should be taken when entering the water due to varying currents.
