There are plenty of other things to do in and around Brixham for those looking for something a bit more active – why not walk the South West Coastal Path and take in the stunning views across Torbay? Water sports and diving are both popular pastimes here, with wreck diving available at a number of local sites, and with jet skiing and sailing all on the agenda, you’ll never be bored in Brixham! Take an evening fishing trip from the harbour or set sail on your own skippered yacht to enjoy a day on the open ocean for some great photo opportunities.

A walk to Berry Head is a lovely way to spend a few hours.  Once there the Guardhouse cafe does brilliant breakfasts and lunches, then stop off in the Berry Head hotel on the way back for a drink and admire the views across Torbay.

Brixham has some wonderful restaurants and pubs to relax in for some delicious food and drink.

Alternatively just relax in One Fisherman’s Loft and enjoy the stunning views across the harbour.

The English Riviera is the perfect destination no matter what the time of year!
