A lovely English seaside beach. Stony, however lovely and clean. Parking at end of beach, and on edge of cliff coming down to roadside.

What do you say about a place so quite we were the only ones on the beach for the first halfhour! If the weathers hot this is a must have getaway place. No hustle, no racket, just the sound of the waves on the beach, and the odd passing person or two. Another little escape on a beautiful stretch of... More

This is a nice quiet pebbly beach away from the main tourist areas of Torquay. The beach has a small cafe and beach huts. The beach is pebbly and is a great place for children to explore.

WHEN are you going to put the wooden steps back up at Meadfoot Beach? Last year they went up about Easter time and so far this year they are still chained to the railings at the toilets. Not much use there, I hasten to add!! I am actually thinking of sending you a bill for all the help I HAVE... More

I love it here. Small beach split into two by rocks, on area is dog friendly all year round. Beach huts for hire and lovely licensed café. 4 star Osborne hotel across the road with nice outside bar and food waitress service. Quiet and far removed from the Torquay main town
