Circular walks visiting Sandymouth beach

The beach at Sandymouth, Cornwall

Sandymouth lies between two headlands - Steeple Point and Menachurch Point - and is the longest beach in the Bude area, measuring over a mile long at low tide. At low spring tides, it joins with Northcott Mouth and Crooklets Beach to the south, creating an expanse of sand all the way to Bude. The seabed slopes sharply away from the beach, producing strong surf which makes it dangerous for swimming but a popular surfing spot.
