Widemouth Bay Beach Blue Flag Clean Beach Winner 2016



A large sandy beach reaching almost 2 miles when the tide is out. To the southern end of the beach you will find a more rocky out crop (Black Rock), at which you will see rock pools teaming with life.


Widemouth Bay 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.


To the north of the beach, just up the foot path (or road) are spectacular cliff top views, which over look the entire beach, and village of Widemouth. Also looking around the coast and across to Milllook Haven and beyond.


Though only three miles from the popular holiday destination of Bude with its 2 sandy beaches of Summerleaze and Crooklets, Widemouth Bay is a very popular beach destination for the beach goer. As well as the regular sunbather and family fun, Widemouth has a great pull for people who enjoy water sports. This is because Widemouth Bay faces west, straight into the full force of the Atlantic Ocean, which though can get a bit blustery, is great for Surfers and Wind-Surfers alike.
