Meadfoot is a shingle beach nestled below an array of spectacular cliffs which provides a perfect setting for those who prefer a quieter environment in which to relax. From the beach you can see Thatcher Rock and Brixham on the opposite side of the Bay.

Meadfoot is a popular spot for diving and fishing and at low tide some great rock pools are exposed.

The impressive crescent shaped Osbourne Hotel overlooks the beach and there is a spilt level promenade which backs onto a tree covered hillside with good access to the coastal paths.
