Took the bus from Torquay to Babbacome for a beach trip , (pebble/shingle mainly,) wear beach shoes for swimming... but a Lovely little bay, has toilets, cafe's , shops, small visitor centre. Everything you need for a relaxing day out , bus 22, or 32 from Torquay centre outside Debenhams .

Good Restaurants/Pubs,Cafes, entertainment ideal for older people to sit on benches and relax. An idea place for those seeking a more leisurely holiday or day out.Everything you need is within walking distance plus the icing on the cake of the best view out to sea any where.
