Bude Tourist Information
With its two beaches – Crooklets and Summerleaze – beach holidays in Bude are amongst the most popular in Cornwall. Both west-facing, the beaches are famous for their surf and are suitable for beginners as well as experienced surfers. The Bude Jazz Festival is held in August and attracts an influx of live bands from all over the world, as well as colourful parades and a happy atmosphere that will make any Bude holiday.
Waves aside, Bude has an interesting history and plenty to explore. Although only 1.5 miles of Bude’s former 30-mile canal is accessible by boat these days, its towpath makes for a beautiful walk and is a great way to explore Bude’s local sights of interest. Those interested in taking in the views on foot during their Bude holiday may wish to try some of the more challenging coastal path walks surrounding the town.
