Torbay

The English Riviera

Torbay is one of Britain’s most popular holiday areas, and it’s easy to see why. You can enjoy more sun than almost anywhere else in Britain on long, sandy beaches and swim, water-ski or take a boat trip along 22 miles of coast.

Torbay’s towns range from a quaint fishing port to a vibrant harbour filled with yachts and surrounded by cafés, clubs and bars, with great shops, museums and theatres.

Our beautiful coastline is complemented by the surrounding lush, green countryside filled with typically English villages.
