Beacon Cove

Beacon Cove is a perfect haven away from the main beach of Torquay, close to the new Living Coasts, a part of the award winning Paignton Zoo. There is good disabled access down to the small promenade above a tiny shingle beach.  Its sheltered position makes it a warm sunny spot even out of season.

Beacon Cove is a short walking distance from Torquay harbour side, adjacent to the Living Coast attraction. There is a car park situated close by providing convenient access to a gentle slope leading down to the beach.
