good beach

This beach was better than the one in Torquay. It had a nice little cafe at the top serving snacks drinks and ice cream.

To stand on the roadway and watch the waves beating against the sea wall is to appreciate the power of the sea. At present they are constructing a considerable number of new waterfront chalets which will improve the location

the beach is lovely and secluded. however, it's a bit steep for babies and elderly, not to mention the disabled.

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.
