Bude is a perfect Cornish destination for a family holiday and surf trip.

This town is an ideal Cornish seaside resort that offers something for all the family and has a legendary surfing attachment.

Bude is relatively small compared to other Cornish resorts but there is a nice selection of surf shops and places to eat.

The Bude Jazz Festival is a popular festival to attend in Bude.  This event is held at the end of August through to the start of September.

Bude Tourist Information Centre

Bude Tourist Information Centre has knowledgeable staff who can help with any local queries. They offer day trips to Lundy Island, sailing from Bideford or Illfracombe. For walkers, they may be able to hold your luggage or arrange for it to be sent to your next destination. You’ll also find the new Canal Visitor Centre; a hands-on and informative display, where you can learn more about the famous Bude Canal.


There are four beaches altogether. Two of the beaches are in the town and they are called Summerleaze beach and Crooklets beach, and the other two are Sandymouth and Widemouth Bay.


Bude has some good surfing beaches and was the site of the first life-Saving Club. Widemouth Bay is a long sandy beach, looking out towards Lundy Island. Surfers tend to prefer the less popular beach of Crackington Haven. Back along the coombe here can be found the old church of St Gennys, which affords a wonderful coastal panorama from its churchyard.
