Great news for North Cornwall tourism with beaches passing European standard.


There’s been some fantastic news for the visitors to the North Cornwall area. A very popular attraction when staying in the hotels of Cornwall in and around the coastal towns here is the chance to swim the shores of our fantastic coastline and the announcement that all of the beaches in Bude Bay passed the minimum European water quality standard is just the news that locals and visitors alike will rejoice in.

Manager of the Bude Cleaner Seas Project, Ian Saltern has also welcomed the announcement.

The project continues to work with local authorities, farmers, tourism businesses as well as the wider community in Bude in order to raise awareness of the causes of bathing water contamination.

Mr Saltern said: “It’s great news that Summerleaze, and the other bathing waters in the area, passed minimum standards this year. “Clearly, the excellent weather this summer helped, but I’d like to think that the messages being put out by the Cleaner Seas Project are also getting through.”
