Simply stunning great walks and very clean. Great hotels in the area. The clifftop walk is not to be missed. Very close to the harbour.

Meadfoot Beach is very good for a walk along the road by the sea. The views are beautiful and there is a café at one end and usually a very good ice cream van at the other.

We visited the beach on the walk back to the apartments from Kents Cavern. The weather wasn't brilliant, overcast and cloudy but the beach was so peaceful and relaxing. We sat on the ledge that is located in the middle of the beach, just listening to the waves, lovely. Would recommend a visit, especially in the sunshine!
