Torquay Beaches Close by

A main reason why tourists travel to Torbay in the summer is due to the beaches.  

Maidencombe Beach, Torquay, Devon


A delightful little cove surrounded by red sandstone cliffs

The sand and shingle beach is within easy reach of Torquay and offers safe swimming with care. There are good coastal walks from the beach and some excellent panoramic views along the coast.

The beach is an idyllic spot and is safe for swimming with care. It is quieter than other beaches in Torquay and is an ideal getaway for those looking for a pleasant uncrowded setting in which to relax.

Anstey's Cove Torquay Is a Blue Flag shingle beach with moderate access and parking a mile from the beach. It has hire facilities and a cafe, and dogs are allowed on this beach.

Meadfoot Beach  Torquay Is a Blue Flag beach with pebble and sand. It is easy access with plenty of parking, hire facilities and refreshments. 

 Torre Abbey Sands Torquay Is as the name suggests, a sand beach. There is plenty of parking and the beach is easily accessible.
