Thatcher Rock, a frequently photographed vantage point in The English Riviera, is a small island located off the northern coast of Tor Bay.

It is situated near Hope’s Nose, Thatcher Point, and Meadfoot Beach. Although visible from a distance, we recommend following the South West Coast Path east of Meadfoot Beach to catch a glimpse of Thatcher Rock.

Thatcher Point offers a fantastic natural viewing area. If time permits, continue on to Hope’s Nose and Anstey’s Cove before circling back past the Kents Cavern area to the original starting point along the coast. On sunny days, the views are truly remarkable.

Thatcher Rock is a part of The English Riviera Geopark and is of geological interest due to its raised beach. Across Tor Bay, you can spot the Berry Head Forts near Brixham Breakwater and Lighthouse.
