While the two beaches are rather stony and at high tide non-existent parking is good, access is good and while there is not the sand as in the main bay nor are there the tourists. Meadfoot is for those in the know. We are not telling of the other hidden beach but keeping that one to ourselves.....

A small beach and when the tide is in not much beach! But the children enjoyed it and there were rocks to explore and climb.

Saw both sides of this, on a hot Saturday with tide in parking on road was manic and no space along the promenade by midday to sunbathe! When tide out lovely beach though. Cafe and toilets here are clean and good. Came on a murky day, a few brave souls out at sea and stunning views from the cafe. Lovely... More

one of our favourite haunts in this area, we enjoy to sit on the beach, but beware the seagulls who are vicious rats with wings and will attack you if they so much as see a crisp bag! My tip is to take an umbrella with you to fight them off if you want to eat your picnic here! a... More

Not a beah for the sandy lover, but the great positioning of it makes it a hidden gem. Very few people visit it, so playing with small children is great fun. We sat there until quite late with young children, and the tide doesn't come in too far, making it pretty safe.
