Quiet beauty spot, reminiscent of childhood holidays. Beautiful select area. Ideal holiday location.

Love this little cafe ! We had breakfast here twice, it was by far the best breakfast we had. All freshly cooked to perfection and very reasonably priced. We walked the coastal path from Torquay which has lovely views. Well worth a visit.

If you are in Torbay and want to get away from the hustle & bustle visit Meadfoot Beach for peace and quiet. A quiet sea front road leads to a quiet car park overlooking the sea. There are a few parking areas along the road but they are time limited. It is so peaceful its unbelievable, and the views are... More

This is a very poor excuse for a beach there is seaweed everywhere I know there is seaweed in the sea but the money Torbay council get from holiday makers you would think they could clean it up a bit.

Just been here and it was very pleasant. The beach is in parts a little rocky but sandy at one end and popular with surfers. There is a public toilet kept very clean and also a very good cafe with inside and outside seating looking over the bay. The service here is very good and I thoroughly enjoyed my scampi... More

Meadfoot Beach café is the ideal place to relax in the sunshine and watch the activities on the beach. Afternoon is the best time, after a paddle in the sea and a walk up the cliff path to admire the wonderful view.

We visited and spent some time at Meadfoot beach whilst on a walk to Anstey Cove. The beach is very picturesque with some good facilities. The only thing letting it down was the fact that the car park and the cafe were at opposite ends of the beach.

Its like taking time out from the hustle and bustle of Torquay. The rocks add to the interest. Some parking available. Good walk up to Daddyhole Plain and a Coastguard Tower you can go up and see the view. Is possible to carry on and walk to Torquay. Local people walking their dogs on the plain ready to chat.
