The beautiful little shingle beach of Fishcombe on the outskirts of Brixham is a quiet, peaceful little cove surrounded on all sides by tall cliffs and wooded hillsides.

The beach is very sheltered and an idyllic spot if you want to escape the crowds of Brixham town.

There is a steep path that leads down from the car park to the beach which passes through mature woodland and opens out to reveal the small cove and spectacular scenery. It can also be accessed by steps from Battery Gardens.
