Surf board hire  & equipment-surf championships are often held here.  On main Summerlease beach is the huge free open air swimming pool. Great for dog owners- pets are welcome on Summerlease & the main beaches along this stretch of coastline (the exception being  Crooklets beach).  Boating hire (rowing boats(  and walks  along Bude Canal (bird sanctuary Nature Reserve, with a cafe at the end of the walk!).  Bude is a town with  lots of  restaurants,cafes, often described as 'the peaceful part of Cornwall', a quieter alternative to the much busier resort of Newquay.
