Some of the beautiful scenic walks around Torbay
Here are some great ideas for walks around Torbay courtesy of southwestcoastpath.com
Magnificent romantic cliff path walks
A favourite is to “Walk into the Brixham sunset” around Battery Gardens. Delightful cliff paths bordered by wild shrubs and flowers, magnificent panorama of shimmering sea in subtle shades of blue and pending night purple, and a huge, low red sun spreading a red-gold path across the waters to Paignton and Torquay on the other side of the bay. Then finally disappearing into the water.
The Panorama Route
The Panorama Route passed by the Oxen Cove coach park, leading to the Tourist Information Centre (inner harbour) via the busy Fish Quay. The return to Oxen Cove is via Middle Street shops, all Saints Church, quaint fishermen’s cottages, delightful secluded Fishcombe Cove and the peaceful Battery Gardens , where the remains of a World War II Battery can be explored. Walk takes about 1 hour.
The Mariners Way
Start from the Tourist Information Centre, visiting The Old Coffin House (a building in the shape of a coffin) on through the main shopping area of Fore Street , past the site of Brixham Cavern, returning via Breakwater Beach and the new Marina Walkway, past the Lifeboat Station and the Coastguard building. Walk takes about 1 hour.
