“Great views and hide away”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

Fantastic views, though a steep decline to get to the beach but well worth exploring if you can. Great for Kayaking too and just taking in the amazing coast line and scenery of south Devon.

“Hidden gem”
Reviewed 24 August 2014 via mobile

Having ended up here by accident we had a great afternoon exploring this hidden gem.

Parking was free and following a walk down the cliff path (easier going down than coming back up!!) we found a cafe. Prices were good and food quality was excellent.

The cove itself had rocks to climb and pools for the kids to explore and go crabbing. A nervous parents nightmare but heaven for fearless kids!

Definately somewhere worth spending time exploring, or sitting back with a cappuccino and watching kids enjoy themselves

“Peaceful retreat”
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.

“Unexpected treat”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

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.
