On a sunny day this place is just beautiful. Looking out over the cliffside onto the clear sea is picture perfect. The beach is also beautiful, I just wish I brought my swimming trunks to swim in the sea!

Babbacombe Bay is surely one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. The view from the top of the cliffs is a sight that has to be seen to be believed! It is truly breath taking the first time you clap eyes on it. The resort has an Old Fashioned, Patriotic, British Seaside Resort feel to it. The... More

Babbacombe has a variety of little shops. For the best views you can sit or walk along Babbacombe downs. There are plenty of places to eat and drink. Can recommend Babbacombe Inn for good meals at very good prices with quick and friendly staff. If you are feeling fit you can walk down to Oddicombe Beach and get the cliff... More

We have visited Babbacombe many times over numerous stays in an around the Torbay area. We find the whole place extremely relaxing and in many ways has a unique atmosphere. We love having a quiet read, especially when the sun is out, on Babbacombe Downs where you can quite easily top up your tan. A leisurely stroll from the Downs... More

We were staying in Torquay and decided to take the local bus to Babbacombe for the day. We were pleasantly surprised on how much we found to do other than sitting on a beach. We went to the model village and bygones, we have reviewed these individually. We then took the vernacular railway down to the beach, the beach itself... More

We visited in July 2016 for 2 days and used it as a base to visit Torquay. The views are very nice and there are lots of lovely walks. The beach has good facilities and generally it is a nice place to visit that is pretty relaxed. This is a place to visit if you want to get away from... More

Peaceful place nice for walking or sitting admiring the views. Wouldn't reccomend the steep narrow drive to the beach car park!!! We decided to park up top and not go to Beach. Would... More
