Visit Babbacombe Beach

Babbacombe Beach is a popular sand and shingle beach on the ‘English Riviera’ in South Devon.

Once a small fishing town, this unspoilt cove attracts visitors all year round, and is a well known scuba diving destination. During the summer visitors can hire a sunbed and relax on the beach, go kayaking or explore the village and ride on the Babbacombe Cliff Railway to take in the views.
