Nestling at the bottom of red sandstone cliffs, Torbay Beach is a sheltered haven for those looking for a relaxing day out.

This attractive stretch of shingle beach is perfect for simply hiring a deck chair, lying back and indulging in the spectacular views. For a bit more action there is a choice of water sports including canoeing, sailing and jet skiing. Away from the sands, a steep walk to the cliff top is well-rewarded with magnificent views across the bay. For those who want the breathtaking views, without losing breath there's always access to the cliff top via the cliff railway. Once at the top there is a café offering a wide selection of food and drink where you can sit back and enjoy the beautiful backdrop.

Oddicombe Beach is adjacent to the South West Coast Path.
