Small stretch of shingle beach overlooking Torbay. Great for rock pooling. Good public toilets (open in Summer). Great friendly cafe. Access to cliff top walks. Back drop of the Osborne , a crescent georgian hotel. Parking available for beach on road and in small carpark.

A favourite place for locals to walk to. Whether it's just a coffee or milkshake, or a full English this is the place to go. Relax and enjoy the fabulous view.

A nice little shingly beach which is only really used by those staying in the hotels in the immediate vicinity. A little sun trap as it is quite sheltered. There is parking space behind the beach and some steps leading down to it.
