“Widemouth Beach - 3 miles south of Bude. Runs for 2 miles from Black Rock in the south to Lower Longbeak in the north. Black Rock is dog friendly all year round. Large car park, toilet, cafe and beach shop. Very popular beach which can get very over crowded in the summer. Great water for surfing and watersports (be careful at low tide due to riptides near the rocks.) Easy accessible but bit of a steep climb on the soft sand back to the car park. This is a nice beach, it was very wet when we went here but it is a very large beach with lots of room for walking, running and exploring around the rocks.”
