Crackington Haven is located on the north Cornish coast between Boscastle and Bude.


Popular with surfers, it can sometimes offer a less crowded spot to catch the waves. Crackington Haven is a long & narrow beach (best at low to mid tide surf dudes!). It's position shelters it somewhat from northerly winds and this can mean that the waves can often stay clean, even on a rough day.


The village has a small shop, two tea rooms and a pub.


From Wainhouse Corner on the A39 take the turn for Crackington Haven. It's about 2 miles from here.
