Accommodation  - Map  -  Bude  -  (back to all beaches)

Northcott Mouth is a rocky cove, but a sandy beach emerges when the tide is out. Also at low tide, the wreck of the SS Belem is revealed!


Children will delight in the little stream crossing the beach and the rock pools, while surfers will enjoy the waves created by rocky reefs. This National Trust beach has a small car park adjacent to it with an “honesty” box for contributions.


There are no toilet facilities. In the summer months, there is often a delightful tea caravan with rustic garden set back from the beach!


Lifeguards patrol the beach in peak summer months.
