This is a beautiful place, spectacularly beautiful and unspoilt. The scenery is stunning and it is overlooked by a graceful hotel, the Osborne. There are old fashioned beach huts down one end of the beach. It has a completely different atmosphere the main part of Torquay sea front. We got engaged here one moonlit night in July.

there is a café and toilets here - free parking under the cliff if you get there early enough - and no crowds - lots of rock pools for the children so take a bucket and net. Traditional seaside fun!

Easily accessible from where we stayed (Daddyhole Road) but not so easy to park, we walked down. The beach is long and very pebbly, sea seems safe for bathing and there are toilets and a cafe at the south end
