Maidencombe Beach

Maidencombe beach is a small sandy beach surrounded by red sandstone cliffs and at low tide interesting rock pools are exposed.
The coastal farm land and woodland around the village of Maidencombe has changed very little over time with the thatched cottages and a pub being a picturesque feature of the village. After a short walk from the car park the path opens up over a delightful little cove.
Maidencombe lies just a few miles north of Babbacombe and is well within reach of Torquay Town. There is good access to the coastal paths giving excellent views of the rugged coastline.
