Torre Abbey Sands in Torquay is the resort's main beach. It's a big beach right on the Promenade.

The sand is soft, but there are also some rocky sections. The waters are shallow and safe, and it's a great beach for families. Water sports also operate.

Beach attendants are on hand during the summer.

There are toilets and facilities for people with disabilities.

Dogs are banned from the beach during the summer season, 1st May - 30th September.

Geographically, Torre Abbey Sands is well placed.
The beach is at the heart of Tor Bay, and is well sheltered.

On the other side of the seafront road is a large public green, called Torre Abbey Meadows. There are also plenty of places to eat and drink.

Public car parks are a short walk away - as is the main railway station.
