With more than 300 miles of coastline and around 160 beaches, there are often more than there are people to visit them in the winter. So where are the best beaches to visit at this time of year. Many of our most popular holiday spots are still well worth a visit, even when the calm turquoise waters turn wild and a little more greyer in pallor and the white horses join the few brave surfers (water temperature can drop from a summer high of 18°C to 7°C during a cold winter). The gentle breeze becomes more bracing and the waves rise.
CORNWALL’S BEST WINTER BEACHES
Bude: Summerleaze and Crooklets beaches
Summerleaze has lots of interest and colour with the famous sea pool, attractive beach huts and the impressive breakwater which protects it from the worst of the winter storms. From Summerleaze it is a short walk to Crooklets Beach and then back on the coast path.
