Beach Breaks in Torquay

The Beaches of Torquay and The English Riviera

Torquay and The English Riviera have a magnificent selection of beaches that can be enjoyed all year round not just in the summer. With everything from long stretches of sandy beaches to secluded coves, there is sure to be something to appeal to everyone. Below are just some of the great beaches available around Tor Bay:


Torre Abbey Sands, Torquay

This is Torquay's main beach. Close by is the fantastic Abbey Sands development with a superb choice of cafes and restaurants.There is seafront parking;  this can be scarce in summer and it can be quite expensive. Better options include the Shedden Hill car park which is just a five minute walk away.

This beach can be reached on foot in about fifteen to twenty minutes from our Lisburne Place Town House.

From 1st October to 30th April, for visitors on dog friendly short breaks in Torquay,  the beach is open to dogs and with its large expanse of sand at low tides it is an ideal place for them to let off steam 


Meadfoot Beach

A short distance from the town centre, this beach is just seconds away from our Tramontane Apartment  and our Stables Apartments. This has rock areas as well as areas with fine shingle.

There is free parking nearby as well as two pay and display car parks at either end of the bay. There is a great beach cafe here too which is open all year round.


Anstey's Cove

Approached down quite a steep pathway, this little cove is a real gem with some stunning coastal scenery and a superb beach cafe. There is parking nearby and this beach is just a 12 minute walk from our Muntham  Apartments and Town House.


Oddicombe Beach

This lies at the foot of Babbacombe Downs and can be accessed via the Babbacombe Cliff Railway which operates all year round. The beach benefits from a variety of watersports as well as a superb cafe - Three Degrees West. This beach can be reached on foot in about 20 minutes from our Muntham Apartments and Town House


Preston Sands, Paignton

This beach lies just between Torquay and Paignton. There is plenty of nearby parking, there are nearby toilets and the superb Boathouse Cafe. As the tide goes out, it reveals a wonderful expanse of sand making it possible to walk all the way along to Paignton Beach.


Paignton Beach

This stretch of sandy beach is an ideal destination for families. Nearby is a superb adventure play ground as well as many places to get refreshments. Paignton Pier also cuts across the beach. There is a lot of parking nearby and when the sun goes down it is just a few steps to the fantastic Vue Cinema located on the seafront.
