Holidays in Torquay

A stroll around the harbour and international marina in Torquay where the palm trees sway in the salty breeze and the boats and yachts bob in the sheltered harbour may lead you to believe you are abroad. The Mediterranean feel is enhanced by many al fresco dining opportunities and relaxed feel in town.

Torquay has a wonderful collection of shops, holiday cottages and attractions such as Kents Cavern underground caves, the Victorian Pavilion and pier.
