This is the best place to take your kids for crabbing. There's a captive pool at the north end that's brilliant for this at low tide. The south end by the hotel sticking out into the sea is the best place for swimming.

A great beach for families and days out. There are a couple of huts that sell food, drinks, toys and deck chair hire. The beach is clean abundant dog free during the summer months. It can get quite cramped when the tide is in.

Nice walk with my partner whilst exploring Torquay. We didn’t go Dow. On the beach but it looked to be clean & we saw a few people enjoying it. I loved the colourful beach huts with all the different colours.

Just on the northern side of Paignton this is a great spot for families. The sun came out briefly when I was passing through on Day 37 of my South West Coast Path walk.

A nice beach area though there is not much else to do around other than hire a beach hut and go to a snack bar. The beach itself is supposed to be dog free but plenty of dogs were being walked along the promenade. More...More

Great sandy beach, long, free parking and ideal for kids - what could be better? There’s several places to grab snacks and drinks from and also a restaurant at the end.
