Soar Mill Cove beach is a small but beautiful cove which remains unspoilt due to the difficulties in getting to it! Should be avoided if you have to carry many things or little people as it is a steep 30 minute walk back to the car or facilities!
Wreck diving is also good here, however only by boat as fierce tidal streams mean that diving The Maine requires good preparation. Slack water lasts about 40 minutes either 3 hrs before or after high tide. Enquire about diving trips, don't try and find it from the shore!

It's a fact !
The Maine, a 400ft boat which was hit by a torpedo in March 1917 by a German U-Boat, was "discovered" by Torbay BSAC in 1961. They own the wreck having paid 100 pounds for her. The club salvaged the bronze propeller, and in 1983 they brought up the spare iron propeller off her deck which is now displayed in a shopping centre in Paignton.
