Small shingle beach by the harbour and lovely walk by the port. Excellent spot for crabbing and great cafe nearby as well as a crab fishing/nets, deck chairs and snacks hut. Public toilet facilities are available - if you're desperate.

Lovely working harbour that somehow stays relaxing even in a crazy busy bank holiday . Great for kids to go crabbing with all you need for sale at reasonable prices at the nearby shops. Only criticism would be perhaps some of the shop keepers could do with 'cheering up ' a bit ! We came across a few grumpy ones... More

Brixham harbour is a lovely place with plenty to do for families of all ages. Crabbing off the quayside or fishing of the breaker. Good food and even better good beer. Sea trips out to Dartmouth or Torquay or a trip on a stream train or boat.

Pleasant spot to stroll and pick up fish and chips - bonus was to see a tame seal that comes right up to edge where people fishing!

Brixham harbour offers beautiful views and amazing food! Ferry service over to Paignton and Torquay is fantastic and only £3 return. Beautiful place.

Brixham is very picturesque and was a 10min walk from our caravan site. This is a fishing marina and a beautiful place to visit.

This is a place around which to amble and enjoy the day. Maybe call in & have something to eat at the many eateries along the way, or have an ice cream, or take the ferry to Torquay or further south.
