Stunning views across Torbay to Berry Head. This small beach is between Torquay and Babbacombe. Away from the crowded areas this is a south west facing sun trap with a car park. Very rocky at each end.

This is a great two-part beach, half rocky and half sandy. There are so many rockpools on the rocky half with little fish and other creatures, and the sandy part is perfect for families as well as watersports.

A lovley place to visit. .excellent for the sun but you need a seat / blanket as its a pebble beach with no sand. The café serves excellent food and has a seated area overlooking this stunning area / sea.

One of my favourite walks from Torquay and back along the coastal walk past Daddy Hole. The ice-cream van seems to be there no matter what the weather.

Nice shingle beach, car park small but plenty of spaces to park in the roadside, steps a bit difficult to master as quiet steep,medievally if you have an eager doggie desperate to get into the beach

Lovely area and great rockpooling opportunities for adults and kids alike at low tide! We took our daughter down, at the other end of the beach from the cafe. Parked in the car park, there is usually an ice cream van in the car park. Beware, don't forget to buy a ticket to park here as the wardens are hot!... More

Nice little beach but its more pebbles than sand which is good for the kiddies to find different kinds of stones. Nice to paddle in the sea...others were swimming. Lovely veiws. Defo a place to visit while in Torquay.
