Shoalstone Pool is an outdoor 53 metre sea water swimming Pool situated in a stunning position on Brixham sea front. The Pool is one of only a few left in the country. It is built into a natural rock pool that in Victorian times was popular for bathing.

In 2004 Torbay Council could no longer afford to support the Pool. A public meeting was convened and a decision taken to create a working party to look at keeping the Pool open. This subsequently became “The Friends of Shoalstone Pool” who worked with Torbay Council to maintain the Pool thus reducing the cost to Torbay Council, Shoalstone also became a Charitable Incorporated Organisation at this time. The Pool is funded from donations, grants, fund-raising, sponsorship, advertising on site, car park revenue and the hire charges for beach huts and beach furniture.

Michelle and her team at Albert Goodman have worked with us as we have transitioned to being a charitable organisation, and it is always reassuring to know that they are there to provide help and advice

In 2023 the ‘Save Shoalstone from the Waves’ campaign was launched. Due to winter storms, the pool is becoming more and more damaged. A full Marine Engineering inspection has concluded that without a major refurbishment, the pool’s life is limited at best to 3-5 years.
