We stayed nearby overlooking the beach. There is a pay and display car park nearby and people did spend time on the beach but it is pebbly. I'm not sure if the beach huts are privately owned or for general hire. Most of the local beaches were pebbly bays but still very pretty.

Shingle, sand and pebbles, Meadfoot is a quiet spot well away from the town centre. A pleasant spot away from the crowds with some off-road parking. Nice cafe too!!

This beach disappears completely at full tide. It is very stony, but the beach cafe does sell shoes that can be worn in the water. The sand is rough shingle and no good for making sandcastles. When the tide is out, there are lots of interesting things to find in the many rockpools.

We Mum, Dad, Daughter & Mason (our King Charles Spaniel) had a day here and found it to be very relaxing even though it was a dog friendly beach there is enough beach to find a quiet spot. Its the next beach on from Blackpool Sands in Dartmouth took us 40 mins from Torquay harbour by car.

We walked down the coastal path from Daddyhole Road. Lovely area with small friendly café and paddle boarders enjoying the calm sea. A peaceful spot away from the bustle of main Torquay area.

Had a lovely walk along the beach and picked up some lovely gems along the way. It was refreshing to have a cup of coffee without feeling we had been robbed. Good coffee, good prices and friendly staff.

Shingle/sandy beach with terrace above where you can hire beach huts and deck chairs for the day/week. There is a very nice cafe which serves food/snacks, ice cream etc. Very safe and popular for swimming. Beautiful views of the bay and Thatcher rock.

Worth a visit if you want a decent beach near Torquay....its not beautiful soft golden sand, its shingly pinkish sand but was fairly secluded, dog-friendly and sheltered.
