Walks in Torbay take you through the English Riviera, a region in Devon known for its sheltered beaches and mild climate. With clifftop views, golden sand, country parks and pretty woodlands, you’re never short of walking opportunities. The towns of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham cluster around Tor Bay, an east-facing bay sheltered from prevailing winds, and form the broader area of Torbay. Each town has its own personality, from the lively Torquay to the charming fishing town of Brixham. 


Clifftop trails and outstanding viewpoints allow the best hikes in Torbay to show its beauty in its entirety. Berry Head in the south is one of the best lookout points while Hope’s Nose offers panoramas across Lyme Bay to the northeast. Discover coves like Anstey’s, Daddyhole, Elberry and Churston and link the towns together with the sea as your constant companion. 


Boats, fish and chips, seagulls and trails to lookouts make hiking in Torbay quite the Famous Five adventure.
