This is a very poor excuse for a beach there is seaweed everywhere I know there is seaweed in the sea but the money Torbay council get from holiday makers you would think they could clean it up a bit.

Just been here and it was very pleasant. The beach is in parts a little rocky but sandy at one end and popular with surfers. There is a public toilet kept very clean and also a very good cafe with inside and outside seating looking over the bay. The service here is very good and I thoroughly enjoyed my scampi... More

Meadfoot Beach café is the ideal place to relax in the sunshine and watch the activities on the beach. Afternoon is the best time, after a paddle in the sea and a walk up the cliff path to admire the wonderful view.

We visited and spent some time at Meadfoot beach whilst on a walk to Anstey Cove. The beach is very picturesque with some good facilities. The only thing letting it down was the fact that the car park and the cafe were at opposite ends of the beach.

Its like taking time out from the hustle and bustle of Torquay. The rocks add to the interest. Some parking available. Good walk up to Daddyhole Plain and a Coastguard Tower you can go up and see the view. Is possible to carry on and walk to Torquay. Local people walking their dogs on the plain ready to chat.

We saw this beach on a walk from our hotel through the Lincombe Woods and Ilsham Valley, a very pleasant walk. The beach is very pebbly, and the sea was very rough so didn't actually go onto the beach and the pavement was drenched with the waves from time to time. There is a cafe at the far end where... More

This was within walking distance of our hotel. It is a lovely tranquil place with a sandy beach and pretty beach huts. There is a cafe right by the beach and toilets also.
