Sandymouth Bay Beach  



A popular but unspoilt beach of pebbles and sand backed by incredible twisted cliffs.

Sandymouth sits along a stretch of coast between Bude and Morwenstow. With a dramatic backdrop of sheer cliffs dating back millions of years, and a pebble ridge at the top of the beach with sand exposed as the tide recedes, Sandymouth is popular amongst surfers and rock-poolers alike.

You’ll find coastal grasslands, as well as flowers such as thrift and sea campion. There are rock pools aplenty along this stretch of coast with colourful creatures to spot, and not forgetting the chance of catching sight of a dolphin or basking shark out to sea, or a peregrine falcon or buzzard overhead.


Sandymouth beach has lifeguards during the summer months that patrol each and everyday, from morning till dusk, so you can feel very safe if you fancy a swim. Please be sure to observe the flags, and the beach safety code.
