“Peaceful retreat”
Review of Anstey's Cove

Anstey's Cove
Reviewed 24 August 2014

When in Torquay must go for a visit to Anstey, not only beautiful, it has history too. Relax, have a coffee and let the outside world wait.

Came upon this almost by accident found free car park and then foot path to beach. Glimpses of beach and sea were quite spectacular. Steep walk down but well worth it great little cafe and toilets a bonus.

A very nice sun trap.

Take a walk down the steep path to Ansteys Cove and you could be on a Greek Island.
Although the beach has been closed for a number of years now (due to rock falls) the Cove has not lost its charm.
It still has crystal clear water ideal for Divers. The Café is clean and reasonably prices. You can hire Canoe for a paddle round the cove or hire a Deck Chair and simply relax.
Toilets on site

Found this by accident, free car park. Bit of trek to the beach but well worth it. Views stunning. A little hut selling snacks as well very friendly, clean and tidy.

This is a little gem hidden from many tourist. First of all we were pleasantly surprised to find a free car park. We then wondered through the woods which are rather steep but there were moments when through the trees you could glimpse the bay, which was breath taking. We then climbed back up steep steps to the car park and found the correct route to the cove. Well ok there is a bit of a trek to get there but once there it is such a beautiful view, well worth the effort. We just wished we had taken our swimming costumes.
