Things to do in Torquay

There are 22 miles of coastline, cliffs, coves, and beaches and walks to rival any in the South West of England, with a climate that belongs somewhere much further south. There are opportunities for surfing, safe swimming, diving, sailing, angling, and wonderful opportunities to study the natural wildlife at your leisure. Lincombe is truly a fantastic hotel in Torquay to indulge and explore from!


Torre Abbey Sands

This is Torquay’s main beach, right on the seafront. It’s the heart of the English Riviera. This pure sand beach is popular for many reasons; the main one being it’s actually in Torquay. A 15-19 minute walk along Torbay Habour or just a 5 minute drive.
