“Great view of Brixham”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

Modestly sandy beach, though you do get a great view of the posh end of Torbay (Brixham). No beach to speak of at high tide.

“Head to Meadfoot!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

The view from the beach cafe is one of the best views I have ever seen. The cafe is run by three very friendly and helpful young ladies. They offer snack type food as well as something a little more substantial freshly cooked to order and you can enjoy a glass of wine with your meal. It is so relaxing to sit and gaze across Torbay listening to the waves on the beach below. The beach itself is a mixture of shingle and stones not ideal for barefeet. The beach is good for swimming. Deck chairs and sun loungers can be hired at reasonable prices as can beach cabins.

“Lovely quiet scenic beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012 via mobile

Sat on meadfoot beach right now and it's absolutely lovely. It's a pebble beach and has stunning views of the surrounding cliffs. I've been past here when the tide is in and the beach almost completely disappears so check the tide times before coming down. There are sections of the beach that allow dogs and there are lots of rock pools for kids to explore. This beach is great as its not crowded at all so if you want somewhere beautiful and quiet to relax this beach is well worth a visit!
