The Sea Pool is part-natural and partially man-made. It was created in the 1930s under the cliffs on Summerleaze Beach, within easy strolling distance of the town centre, to provide safe bathing in sea water, but away from the dangerous currents in the bay. It is topped up at high tide by the Atlantic Ocean. The spacious Pool provides plenty of room for paddling or serious swimming: inflatables, snorkels surfboards and even scuba divers are welcome – just be considerate of other users, please. The Sea Pool is open throughout the year and is FREE for all to enjoy. Lifeguards are on duty at peak times. Children must be accompanied at the Sea Pool at all times. less

In the 1980s Roger studied the spectacular Bude cliffs for his doctoral thesis, and now chooses to live here, 300 yards from the Atlantic surf, running his one-man consultancy 'Geoclastica Ltd'. Bude Geo-Walks operate all year (except when Roger is called overseas), currently departing on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10am from Bude Tourist Information Centre. These fascinating 2-hour guided strolls along the beach examine Bude’s dramatic cliffs, made of hard sandstone and mudstone beds, zig-zag folded by England colliding with France 300 million years ago, long before dinosaurs existed. Geo-Walkers learn how these beds were first deposited as soft sand and mud in tropical “Lake Bude”, home to Bude’s own unique fossil fish, Cornuboniscus budensis, unique in the world and now on display in Bude Castle Heritage Centre. less
