Institute beach is a quiet little cove backed by red sandstone cliffs, which is tucked away behind the Livermead Cliff Hotel on Torquay’s seafront road and looks across to Abbey Sands.

The beach is made up of sand, shingle and rocks and at low tide interesting rock pools are exposed.

Institute beach is right next to Livermead sands and is accessed by a set of steps off Cliff Road.
