The English Riviera has an impressive range of beaches that can be enjoyed at all times of the year.

There are plenty of water sports on offer as well as a wonderful beach cafe called Three Degrees West.
Torre Abbey Sands
This is Torquay's main beach. It all but disappears at high tide but when the tide is low a vast expanse of flat sands are exposed. It is a wonderful beach for families as the sands are so flat and even when in the sea there are no steep slopes. Nearby are toilets, on street parking, car parks and the Abbey sands developments with a great range of bars, restaurants, cafes and takeaways. Torre Abbey is just a five minute walk away as is the Riviera International Centre with its leisure pools. From The Muntham Apartments and Town House it is five minutes by car or ten minutes by bus. It is also walkable in about thirty minutes.
