"Sittin' on the dock of the bay"

Oddicombe Beach

Nestling at the bottom of red sandstone cliffs, Torbay Beach is a sheltered haven for those looking for a relaxing day out. This attractive stretch of shingle beach is perfect for simply hiring a deck chair, lying back and indulging in the spectacular views. For a bit more action there is a choice of water sports including canoeing, sailing and jet skiing. Away from the sands, a steep walk to the cliff top is well-rewarded with magnificent views across the bay. For those who want the breathtaking views, without losing breath there's always access to the cliff top via the cliff railway. Once at the top there is a café offering a wide selection of food and drink where you can sit back and enjoy the beautiful backdrop.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use. Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
