Of course, the best part of Widemouth Bay is Widemouth Bay Beach - 1.5 miles of glorious sand.

Though it appears to be one large expanse of sand, the beach is actually divided into two sections: the North Beach and the South Beach (also known as Black Rock). This division comes in the form of a barrier of natural rocks - the largest being the landmark known as Black Rock. At low tide, hundreds of rock pools are exposed - perfect to keep the children (and adults) entertained. 

Ample parking is available at Widemouth Bay, but if you don't fancy getting your toes sandy, you can park at one of the free viewing areas! 

There is a seasonal dog ban on this beach from the 15th May to the 30th September between 10am and 6pm. Outside these hours and from 1st October to 14th May dogs are allowed.

Things to do

If you fancy a change from rock-pooling and making sand castles on the beach, you might like to try surfing. Don't worry if you're a beginner you can take surfing lessons with Freewave Surf Academy or Outdoor Adventure

There are lots of lovely walks in and around Widemouth Bay. You could try walking to Bude, via Philips Point Nature Reserve, over Efford Down, to the watch tower at Compass Point and then follow the canal into Bude. 

If you're looking to explore further afield, check out our blog about things to do in Bude.

Places to eat

There are several eateries in and around Widemouth Bay.

Firstly, The Bay View Inn provides a selection of seasonal classics and food with a twist. They have three separate indoor dining areas, several alfresco dining areas and spaces available for private hire. In peak season, they open a snack shack, serving a variety of take away foods. 

Close to the beach, you'll find Black Rock Cafe and Bistro, serving freshly-cooked artisan food. You can enjoy your food inside, or on the deck soaking up the views. 

With direct access to the beach, Widemouth Bay Cafe serves all day breakfast, fish and chips, burgers, cream teas and other light snacks. 

Slightly outside of Widemouth Bay, Elements Cafe Bar and Restaurant serves a selection of food, specialising in pizza and pasta. The restaurant has beautiful views to enjoy while you dine.

We stayed at Little Causewell which is a pretty cottage attached to a farmhouse. Lovely little place and very comfortable. The owners are very friendly. Nice area of Cornwall for visiting places. I would definitely recommend this holiday cottage.

Our stay was wonderful on the whole. Kate and Dan, our hosts were so helpful in helping us find the location on arrival which we struggled with based on the written directions alone! The location is idyllic, set a bit away from the A39, but do be sure to be careful driving up and down when wet especially if you don't have a 4x4! The accommodation is warm and cosy and we love cooking, so was equipped with all we needed. Kate gave us great recommendations of places to visit and the best fish and chips. We recommend Pekish in Castleford! We did manage to get out to visit Padstow and Rick Steins chippie! Port Isaac and the local beach in Bude was lovely. The local farm shops are worth supporting and buying local milk, cheese and Cornish produce. On the whole Mum and I recommend visiting. We loved Kate's home made blackcurrant jam and cooking her beautifully homegrown courgette and runner beans when we returned from our break. Thank you!

Ayesha and Shaheen.

We highly recommend a stay at Little Causewell - Dan and Kate are wonderful hosts and were very welcoming as was the Cream Tea with homemade scones and jam (yum!) The property is very clean, comfortable and well presented, in very peaceful and tranquil farmland yet only a few minutes drive to the beach and local restaurants.
We had a wonderful time exploring the local area before coming back to Little Causeway and admiring the beautiful flowers in the gardens....a beautiful little haven. Thank you for having us :-)

Great host, very kind and helpful. Highly recommended property. The property was very comfortable, wonderfully maintained with lot of love and very well equipped with even smaller things like pegs, dishwasher tablets etc. Lot of efforts were put by the host to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Sunset view from the property was amazing. The welcome tea and scones were very tasty. We would love to visit this property again.
