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

We enjoyed a vigorous walk from Torquay train station to Hope's nose along Meadfoot beach. It was a great place for the dog to run and a fossil hunter's dream. Thatchers Rock was shrouded in mist giving an eerie backdrop to our walk.

This is a very unspoiled and beautiful little beach. There are refreshments available at the beach bar whilst taking in this unspoilt and relaxing scenery.
