Bright sunshine greeted me for this re-visit to Torre Abbey Sands, the walk to the beach via Abbey Park always a pleasure. A silver sea lit the view over to Brixham and Paignton, as visitors promenaded by the beach. This is an affluent area of Torquay, with fine restaurant and hotels in abundance. A wall divides the beach from the road and traffic, creating a peaceful haven, without having to leave the convenience of the town. Highly recommended.
Two happy London visitors to Torquay.

Torre Abbey Sands are a long strand in Torquay, on the English Riviera. The beach lies just west of the harbour and marina, with excellent access and a park called Abbey Park nearby. The bathing water is European designated and there are shops, restaurants and a promenade behind the beach. You’ll also find colourful beach huts and a rocky cove at the end of the beach. A fine town beach.
