“Large beach”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

Visited on a windy evening and it was very quiet. Bis stretch of sand with some rocks for rock-pooling at one end, and pretty beach huts. A few of the usual tacky seaside food outlets etc. Large flume park overlooks and could be a nuisance I expect if your children want to go there instead of the beach!

“Nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

Nice for an hour or two with the children. Plenty for them to do while nan wastes all her money playing on the twopenny machines.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

lovely little beach, lovely clean sand, rock pools and the steam train passes by. Few places to get food, little vendors on the beach, pub on the Quay which is a Brewers Fayre it was ok. Would have loved the kids to visit the water park but it was a little to chilly and they were reluctant. Lovely quiet walks along the beach at night when the tides coming in. It's very pretty with all the coloured beach huts along the prom. There is a small shop and games arcade along the prom too, We had a go on the swan boats in the lake over the road, kids loved it, also a round of crazy golf. Plenty to do there and a much nicer beach than Paignton. Although does not have all the little gift shops that Paignton has.
