Meadfoot is a shingle beach in the lovely Wellswood area of Torquay.

With Lincombe Woods behind, it's a small beach away from the main Torquay town centre area.

It has canoeing, paddleboats, café/restaurant, disabled visitors' facilities, beach huts, deckchair/pedallo hire, a slipway, lost child centre, and first aid.


Meadfoot Beach

This beach is used mainly by locals and visitors who prefer a quieter environment.

There is a promenade which is split-level and backs onto a tree-covered hillside.

The impressive Osborne Hotel building - built in a crescent shape - overlooks the beach and has a restaurant and bistro.

How to get to Meadfoot: From Torquay harbour, take the main road to Babbacombe. Take a right hand turn just 100 yards from the harbour and this takes you to the beach.
