On the south side of Widemouth Bay, Black Rock beach has wild beauty in abundance. Look to the south and you’ll spot a prominent rocky outcrop which gives this beach its name. Watch out for big tides here (Blackrock Beach becomes isolated at the height of the tide). Some major point and reef breaks draw the surfers, while nature lovers of all ages will enjoy looking through the abundance of rock pools at low tide.
The Bude Canal offers the closest and most sheltered location for Canoeing and Kayaking. Bigger waters such as the sea or Upper Tamar Lake also await the intrepid paddler, but we would highly recommend guidance for anyone but the highly experienced. There are also plenty of coaching sessions with all the gear provided at Upper Tamar Lake where it is also possible to launch your own craft with permission.
Bude's beaches have always been fantastic. Once again in 2019, and thanks to the work of A Greener Bude and local environmental groups with the support of the wider community, Bude's beaches have once again been awarded prestigeous internationally recognised standards and awards - Blue Flag and Seaside Awards.
What could be a healthier, more fun way to spend a day in Bude than taking to the waters? Whether you’re an experienced paddler or a complete beginner there are exciting options. For the adventurous, the surrounding coast offers some of the most inviting sea kayaking Cornwall has to offer.
For beach lovers Where is your own perfect beach? That could be a tough call with so much inviting coastline to explore. This is the beauty of the resort: The visitor has top facilities
