Lovely little beach with a bit of shingle but awesome mace we see a seal Lin cone ring up close, plenty of activities IE canoeing pedlows jet skis, etc there's a food and drinks bar and you can take the over 100 year old rail trains down the cliffs to the beach which also allows dogs. Great beach to visit

Great day at babbacombe beach! Great with facilities, as in toilets close, cafe, bar, paddle boats... Great day for a family. We got the cliff railway back up as its steep and got some lovely ice creams at the top.

As I am a resident I may be a little prejudiced. Beautiful Babbacombe Bay - the view is incomparable. Babbacombe is such a friendly place and there is something for everyone whatever age.

On a good day, yes sometimes in Southern England, you can see sixty miles from here. Clear up the SW coast of England nearly to Weston-Super-Mare. A wonderful park area to sit and contemplate.

Babbacombe is a beautiful suburb of Torquay. You have the Downside which is very picturesque. You have great bars such as The Buccaneer and the Cary Arms which is stunning.
