English Riviera Beaches

One of the great beauties of Torbay is its unspoilt coastline offering some breathtaking views. Along a 22 mile stretch, over 20 safe beaches and secluded coves comprise the aptly named English Riviera. So whether you’re after a place to lay out your towel, build sandcastles, have a gentle paddle, explore a rock pool or just a quiet place to sit, you’re sure to find a beach to suit.

Torbay, as well as a popular family holiday resort, has, over recent years, become really popular with the diving community. It has many beaches suitable as places to learn and others for the more experienced diver where you can enjoy more challenging wreck diving.

Did you know? Torbay now has more beach awards than any other area in the UK!
