Ideal if you after a beach quieter than the main beaches in Torquay. Whilst it's more stone laden I found it better and more relaxing.

Great beach for a swim as the water clarity is great (usually!) There are a few facilities on the beach, but it is always less crowded than the main beach in Torquay and parking is available. Lovely walk across Daddyhole Plain from the beach.

This is a very small bay that attracts many swimmers, the cafe is great, it is also lovely sitting there and watching the boats going pass, there is not much sand for the children
