Bedruthen beach

It's tricky to find a definitive answer.

Is there any bye law or prohibition to prevent someone anchoring off bedruthen beach?

I've asked lifeguards, searched Cornwall councils website, scoured charts and looked at the RNLI website.

Any general advice on where I can find this info about beaches on the north Cornwall coast would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

No law, just ****ng great surf! Forget it. the North coast can be ankle lapping one day and double overhead the next. Look at either Newquay or Padstow if you want to leave it on the water.

Should have been clearer. RIB is kept in Padstow but I'd like to spend a few hours on the beach at bedruthen one day when the weather and swell is ok.

Anchor up and swim in with a picnic type affair.

OK, if you get lucky with the sea state, go for it.

I've yet to find a lifeguard who has any clue what the rules are. A few of them seem to think they own the beach though. Unless there's a buoyed off area I'd just help yourself, with a dose of common sense re swimmers, surfers etc.

I've been working just off of the beach at Polzeath for the last three months. I can tell you that you're gonna have to get lucky with the surf to even consider a beach landing. 4ft and clean today, enough to flip a 6m rib, no prob.

Swell permitting all I want to do is anchor off and swim in.
