You don’t have to travel to the other side of the world for the holiday of a lifetime. South Devon is home to great beaches, exciting attractions and so much more.
The English Riviera
At its heart is the English Riviera, South Devon’s beautiful bay, with no less than 22 beaches and the winner of the 2011 Keep Britain Tidy award for the cleanest beaches.
Torquay, Babbacombe, Paignton and Brixham each have their own unique character. Torquay is a hub for eating out, socialising and nightlife, while Babbacombe is a tranquil retreat from the bustle of the town centre. Brixham is a working fishing port, with a fascinating maritime history, and Paignton is home to world-class attractions, including the famous Paignton Zoo, which features over 3000 animals including lions, monkeys and elephants.
The whole area has been designated a UNESCO-supported Global Geopark because of its 400 million year-old rock formations, and visitors can rub shoulders with Britain’s prehistoric past at Kents Cavern.
Natural beauty and fascinating history
The English Riviera is the ideal base for exploring South Devon. Plymouth is home to Britain’s deepest aquarium and some great shopping, while Dartmoor National Park offers 368 square miles of beautiful scenery and countless walking trails – both within an hour’s drive. All around the English Riviera there are dozens of quaint villages that help to give South Devon its unique character.
Whatever time of year you visit South Devon has a huge amount to offer visitors of all ages, and you don’t even need a passport to get here.
