Beach
“institute beach is a quiet little cove backed by red sandstone cliffs, which is tucked away on Torquay's seafront road. The beach is made up of sand, shingle and rocks and at low tide interesting rock pools are exposed, great for families. Institute beach is right next to Livermead sands and is accessed by a set of steps off Cliff Road. ”
