Babbacombe is everything that a great British seaside resort should be – with fabulous views, lots to do and tons of family-friendly accommodation.
Babbacombe Downs has the highest cliff top promenade in England, and on a clear day you can see right across to Portland Bill in Dorset. If you’ve got a good head for heights, Babbacombe Cliff Railway is a great way to get down the cliff to Oddicombe Beach, and you can often spot dolphins and seals playing offshore at nearby Babbacombe Beach. This is also one of the South West’s leading diver training centres where you can take your PADI open water certificate (Divers Down is a good place to hire equipment and organise courses.)
Away from the beaches, Babbacombe Model Village is a must-see attraction for kids and grown-ups alike while Babbacombe Theatre on the cliff top has variety shows and comedy all year round. If you fancy a classic plate of fish and chips, check out the award-winning Hanbury's, where they serve freshly-caught Brixham fish and the fattest, chunkiest homemade chips.
Whether you’re looking for relaxation or thrills and spills by the beach you can’t go wrong with a visit to Babbacombe on the English Riviera, South Devon’s beautiful bay.
