Sports & Leisure

Many people who visit the English Riviera are impressed by the massive amount of things to do here. Of course you can just lie on the beach and enjoy the good weather, but if you fancy something more active, there are plenty of opportunities for Sports & Leisure on the English Riviera, South Devon’s beautiful bay.  

Watersports and more

Watersports of all kinds are popular here, and the relatively warm sheltered waters make it ideal for beginners, as well as the more experienced. If you want to experience surfing, kayaking, jet skiing, sailing or scuba diving for the first time there are plenty of watersports centres on the English Riviera which can provide you with all the equipment and tuition you’ll need to have a great time.

But the action doesn’t just take place on the water, and there’s no shortage of sporting and leisure activities for landlubbers too. Why not try out quad biking in the beautiful South Devon countryside? Or over on Paignton seafront, check out the brand new Parkfield BMX Track which offers exhilarating fun for all ages. Of course, you can always enjoy an amble or ramble along the South West Coast Path.

Something for you, something for the kids

If you’d rather spend time working on your swing while the kids enjoy the faster-paced activities, you’ll be pleased to know there are several excellent golf courses in the area, as well as pitch and putt and crazy golf. Alternatively, head over to the bait shop and cast out at some of the English Riviera’s great fishing spots.
