Millook Haven is a northwest facing beach consisting mainly of coarse shingle and quite large pebbles driven up into a 'storm ridge'. It is located about four miles south of Bude and about two miles southwest of Widemouth Bay in North Cornwall. Millook Haven lies under the imposing Penalt Cliff.
The beach lies at the end of a narrow road and there is very very little parking so other arrangements should be made if you wish to visit.
There are no facilities here and no lifeguard cover. Dogs are permitted all year round however.
Geologists will find plenty to examine at Millook as the strata is folded into stunning zig-zag (recumbent) folds.
Experienced surfers sometimes use this beach but it is definitely not for beginners!
✔ Dogs permitted
✔ Interesting geology
