A nice walk along the downs is all you need followed by a coffee at one of the local cafes. Very chilled.

There is so much to see and do around the area, or just relax on Babbacombe downs. A must for any tourist. Take the open top tour bus from outside Debenhams in Torquay for a fun and informative tour in parts of Torquay you don't normally see. There are several theatres in the area, for evening shows. Also sandy beaches... More

The views are magnificent, take plenty of pictures. Clear water, wooden bridges, small waterfalls and pebble beaches. We could've easily spent a full day relaxing if the weather was better, unfortunately it was wet and windy for us. Still worth a trip even if it is raining. There is a nice historic pub with food and drinks overlooking the sea.... More

A very pretty and special part of Devon. Will need to return to visit the cliff top railway. Walk along the cliff top and visit the model village whilst here.

And we had two energetic children with us too. Car... More

Whenever we are in Torquay and surrounding areas we always stop on the cliffs of Babbacombe to take in the views and pop into one of the good eateries on the clifftop our favourite being The Babbacombe Inn. Very good value and good choice.
