Enjoy superb walks around this stretch of coastline, and along the coast to the fishing village of Brixham. Take a ferry from Torquay or Dartmouth and visit Dartmoor with its rugged tors and lovely villages tucked away. Activities available nearby include golf, go-karting, birdwatching and sailing.

Walk from Torre Abbey Gardens and Park beyond to reach the picturesque harbour, theatre, shops, cafes and restaurants. The Living Coasts Zoo and Aquarium, where penguins roam freely, is worth a visit, and just a short drive or bus ride is Babbacombe Model Village, Bygones, a family-friendly attraction depicting British history from the Victorian era, railways and the 1950s, and Kents Cavern, a prehistoric cave.
