Peaked Tor is a tiny pebbly cove down a set of over 150 steps from thebehind the Imperial Hotel. In the late 19th century this beach was designated as a 'gentleman’s bathing cove'.
At the top of the steps above the beach is an old wartime Mine Watcher’s post from where mines protecting Torquay Harbour would have been remotely detonated. The old pill box now provides a secure roost for a local colony of Horseshoe Bats.
