Redgate Beach, Torquay
Once one of Torquay's best and most popular beaches, Redgate has been closed for many years because of rockfalls: SX9364 : Cliffs above Redgate Beach SX9364 : Rockfall, Redgate Beach, Torquay SX9364 : Redgate Beach from Walls Hill Access is still possible, with care, although the old boardwalk from Anstey's Cove, round the corner, has been taken away and now stops abruptly, right.
A singular location, geologically, with New Red Sandstone at the south end of the beach, and the Devonian limestone plateau of Walls Hill at the north end. In the distance, left, is Black Head, a still surprisingly remote stretch of Torquay's coastline.
