Heading off in your hire car from the railway station you’ll immediately come to Torquay’s main beach called Abbey Sands. Following this along will take you to the picturesque and busy harbour from where you can take pleasure and fishing boat trips across Torbay.

Carrying on up Babbacombe Road you can turn onto Daddyhole Plain, a small cliff top plateau which looks down onto the harbour area. From here there is a beautiful landscaped walk along and down the cliff to the harbour. Returning along the seafront to the station, be sure to visit Torre Abbey, a 12th century monastery.
