The beautiful sandy beach of Watcombe is an idyllic spot surrounded by cliffs and wooded hillsides.

There is a steep path that leads down to the beach which passes through mature woodland and opens out to reveal a small cove, with spectacular scenery.

Watcombe beach is just a few miles north of Babbacombe and well within reach of Torquay Town.
