Hope's Nose Beach (East), Devon


  • Located in Torquay, Devon, South West England, England
  • At *low tide*, various beaches are exposed around Hope's Nose. Arguably the best is the beach area on the east side of the headland. Access is via steep tracks at either end of the beach. We'd only recommend exploring this area if you are a confident coastal walker
  • The beach area is mainly rock although there's an area consisting of sea-polished stones and shells. Note that this is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) so you mustn't take any of these stones and shells away with you. There are many beautiful and clear rockpools. Clearly, given its location within the The English Riviera Geopark, there are some amazing rock structures and geological features to enjoy as well. Out at sea are the islets Lead Stone and Ore Stone. There's a lot of birdlife. Watching birds dive for food is fun
  • Across Tor Bay, you'll see Berry Head. Whenever we come to this area, there are always huge tankers out at sea
  • There's limited parking on the roadside above Hope's Nose. A path leads down to the headland
