A wonderful stretch of beach with stunning views and in the most beautiful location. Walk the coastline from here. It's perfect.

We were there on an overcast day but it was so peaceful, water was crystal clear and scenery was lovely. What is not to love.

We walked along the prom and down to the area where the beachhuts are. It has wonderful views over Torbay and looking down to the beach where the tide was coming in, crystal clear water. You could see right through these waters and the bay was stunningly blue. There is a small cafe on the beach which serves hot and... More

We came here by chance. All the accommodation in Exeter was full due to the university handing out degrees! A man called Gary answered the phone and politely said there was just one room available, a deluxe double, so we took it. When we arrived at around 8 pm Gary opened the door and offered to take our luggage from... More

This was a beautiful beach where the water has been designated as blue flag. It was wonderful to be able to paddle in the clean water and then relax reading a novel on the lightly pebbled beach. It was really heaven on earth. Can't recommend it highly enough, but don't want it to get too busy.

My wife, friends and I come to this great little cafe regularly for breakfast, when we're on a walk along the coast or just because it's there, but it just got better as they now have a license. Not suggesting you have a beer with your full English breakfast of course (!), but it's nice to stop for a beer... More

My partner and I walk along the beach often but never visited the café. I am so glad that we had gone there for lunch as it tasted lovely so we decided to visit the next day for breakfast too. The price is very good for what you get and how it tasted. The staff are absolutely lovely and gave... More
