This gently shelving shingle beach, close to the old fishing port of Brixham, affords excellent views across Torbay. Low tide exposes pools between angled tablets of rock. There is an open-air swimming pool at the eastern end of the beach.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point (Greenway Quay) and may not be accurate for this beach. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use.

Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
