About Us

Protecting Brixham Harbour is the massive structure of Brixham Breakwater, stretching for half a mile offshore. It's a pleasant walk along the length, and from the far end you gain a very different perspective of the harbour and town.

Brixham Breakwater is a great spot for fishing - it is possible to fish both the seaward side and into the harbour, meaning you might catch wrasse, conger eels, mackerel, garfish, bass, pollack and mullet. If you chose to fish, do remember that boats have the right of way, and this is the main channel for all vessels to pass in and out of the harbour.

During storms, some spectacular, huge waves smash over the breakwater - this makes for some great photography, but never go onto the breakwater itself in such conditions.

Directions

Road Directions

Following the A380 which then becomes the A3022 into Brixham you will come across the Bolton Arms PH at a set of traffic lights where you need to go left. Follow the road marked “Harbour” until you happen upon another junction where you need to turn right. Follow the road alongside the harbour and head for Shoalstone. You’ll need to go straight over the roundabout and you’ll find the breakwater on your left some 500yds further.
