Take a dip in Bude Sea Pool

Bude, Cornwall

Take the whole family to this part man-made, part natural sea pool which nestles under the cliffs at Summerleaze beach in Bude.

Built with the aim to provide a safe and fun swimming haven on the Cornish coast, Bude Sea Pool is topped up twice a day by the waves of the Atlantic Ocean creating a unique environment for locals and visitors alike.  

The pool has become a popular tourist attraction for the town, offering a unique experience for families from across the country to enjoy. Let your little ones get their toes wet, watch the sporty ones take a plunge or simply soak up the sunshine beside the fresh salty water.

Since 2011 it has been in the hands of ‘Friends of Bude Sea Pool’; a volunteer charity organisation committed to raising enough money to preserve, improve and enhance the sea pool to carry on benefiting the community and its visitors.

Open throughout the year, Bude Sea Pool is free for all visitors.
