“quiet beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2014

Lovely pebbley beach, with some sandy areas too. Quiet area from main tourist beaches. Beautifully clean area. Has a lovely cafe and shop that sells all your beach necessities. Beach huts available to hire too. Definitely a lovely beach for families.

“A great place to get away from the crowds”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2014

This is a small quiet beach area, and you do need to be there when the tide is out. The is a pay and display car park as well as free on road parking. There is a great little cafe and also public toilets. From the beach area you can walk along the coast path to Daddyhole Plain and then into Torquay, or in the other direction towards Thatcher Rock. Behind the beach at the far end there is a grassy area where you can play games/ walk your dog etc.

“Meadfoot beach.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014

I live close to this beach and enjoy the view from Meadfoot Sea Road on a daily basis. The beach is very popular with all age groups and the cafe is friendly and not overpriced! Parking along the road is difficult but there us a large car park just up from the beach; unfortunately you would have to pay to park here!
The drive along the sea road leads to the scenic Ilsham Marine Drive with its superb view of the Bay.
Overlooking Meadfoot beach is the Osborne - hotel, timeshare apartments, restaurant and outdoor eating/bar area.....lovely for that sundowner!
