Shoalstone is a small shingle and rocky beach just along the coast from Brixham Harbour and breakwater. It is adjacent to Shoalstone Pool, which is Brixham's outdoor seawater swimming pool and is one of only a few left in the country.

At low tide rock pools are exposed which are great to explore and nearby is Berry Head National Nature Reserve  Opens in a new window .

There is easy access to the promenade surrounding the beach and pool, with a cafe and superb views across the bay.
