Beaches

Breakwater Beach
Away from the busy town, this pebble beach is less well known. Perfect for snorkeling and hunting for crabs under the rocks. At high tide you can swim in from the steps. At low tide rock-shoes are recommended for entering the sea. It is a more sheltered cove with an excellent cafe and well-maintained toilets.

A hidden gem. It is a less well-known pebble beach and a 15 mins walk from parking above Fishcombe Cove and Battery Gardens. Hunt for seaglass on this beach. Behind the beach is a valley woodland, Churston Woods with historic lime kilns peeping from beneath the branches. Nearest toilets ae on Fishcombe Cove.

Sightseeing

Shoalstone Pool is excellent for those wanting a break from the pebbles or sand. It's also contained and safe with lifeguards between set times in summer. The pool has a shallow end, perfect for very little ones. The deep end is fun for jumping in. It's a scenic location and everso slightly warmer water temperature too! Best visited after a recent high tide.

Berry Head is a unique vantage point to view the whole of Torbay and even as far as Portland Bill on a clear day. The Guardhouse Cafe is a delightful rest stop with indoor and outdoor seating. A great menu. Or grab a take-away coffee and take it with you as you walk.

Food Scene

This is the cherry on the top of Fishcombe Cove. This fab cafe serves excellent dishes using locally sourced produce. I highly recommend their bread-bowls as well as ice cream, coffee and cakes. Toilets are also close by.

Excellent seafood and wonderful table service with gift bags for children. You must book way in advance not to disappoint. Perfect veranda seating is available overlooking the trawlers as they bring in the catch. Look out for Sammy the seal!
