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.

Althoughthe beach is Stoney it is quite quiet and safe away from the usual holiday crowd . Swimming is safe and the views towards Brixham are stunning.

I visit Meadfoot beach several times a week with the dog. It is a great beach with plenty of stones to throw for him as he loves swimming in the sea. Parts of Meadfoot beach are dog friendly all year round.

A lovely little beach. We did visit on a very chilly day. But a great walk with family. If you want to get away from the central town area this is just perfect. All the family had a great time here.

Although we went near end of September and half term had finished this beach was nice and quiet. Tucked away only a mile or so east of the hustle and bustle of the town centre

Visited just as tide was turning, can't wait to go back at low tide as it looks fantastic for rock pooling. Had lovely, tranquil dog walk along beach watching waves breaking on the rocks. Off season must to visit.

Perfect for dog walking or to walk away the stresses of the day. Usually quiet but you do get the odd dog Walker and surfer.
