Crooklets Beach

Although a little pebbly at the top, Crooklets offers a huge expanse of golden sand and rock pools to explore once the tide is out.

Crooklets Beach is actually attached to Summerleaze Beach.  During low tide, you can walk between the two across the sand in 15 minutes.  This means there is easy access to the Bude Sea Pool.

Clean, safe and easy on the eye, Crooklets Beach is a big hit with surfers, beach bums and families. However, the seasonal dog ban results in people flocking to, or running away!  There are several activity companies here for outdoor pursuits and water sports.

Crooklets Beach has a lovely sloped promenade which offers level access and a flat viewing area.  There are lots of cute beach huts available for daily hire.
