Rusey Beach

Rusey Beach
Last updated:

One of Cornwall's most off the beaten track beaches, Rusey Beach sits on the rugged stretch of North Cornwall coast between Boscastle and Bude. The coastline here is characterised by tall dramatic rocky cliffs rising out of the Atlantic. In fact Rusey Beach sits in the shadow of the highest point on the Cornish coast - the imaginatively named High Cliff.

This should give you an idea of what to expect, this isn't bucket and spade territory. The backdrop is pretty spectacular but you won't find anything in the way of facilities for miles and the steep "path" is somewhat challenging. In addition the sea here is treacherous and like neighbouring Strangles beach, swimming shouldn't really be contemplated.

Rusey is somewhere to enjoy a bit of solitude and take in the surrounds.
