Beautiful views, secluded, amazing rockpools and facilities present. This beach is one of the best in the bay as it is slightly off the beaten track, and therefore isn't as full of tourists as many of the other beaches can be in the summer.

Small shingle beach with local cafe and local parking nearby. Ice cream van normally present at the end car park. Great views out to sea and of the land masses within the sea.

We took a long walk along the beach which was so relaxing. This is a great beach for dogs to play aswell. It is a stone beach and has lots of rocks if you fancy a little climb

Nice beach ! Tide was out, plenty of rock pools and about 20% sand. Bigger than I thought, tucked away with free parking and I would imagine less crowded than the more obvious Torquay beaches. The café was very good, above average in all departments;...More

No one seems to mention the art nouveau wall of huge quartz/marble stones on Meadfoot Beach. To me this is an amazing engineering feat of great beauty. It has withstood the pounding of the sea I imagine since somewhere around the turn of the 19th...More
