Bude Sea Pool is a beautiful, part natural, part man-made
pool in the rocks at Summerleaze Beach (location
map), in Bude and was built originally in 1930, although there
have been many refurbishments carried out, the latest in spring
2011. The sea pool is now managed by the friends of Bude Sea Pool.
