Brixham is a pretty English harbour town whose multi-coloured coloured fishermen's cottages clinging to the hillside in crooked rows ooze character. The town's sloping cobbled streets and traditional seaside shops create a laid back atmosphere and the bustling harbour side offers all the ingredients for a classic English seaside holiday - cream teas, crab sandwiches, shellfish, and crabbing from the harbour wall to name just a few
With 19 beaches and coves and a naturally sheltered port, holidays in Brixham are bound to include the ideal beach for you. The sloping sandy beach of Broadsands is two miles outside of Brixham and is a popular choice with families. Churston and Fishcombe Coves are sand shingle and the walk from Brixham to Broadsands through the coves passes through a wonderful combination of rugged coastline and attractive woodland. Alternatively, Breakwater Beach is very family-friendly, a shingle beach with easy access ,plenty of parking and includes facilities.
Brixham's maritime past is reflected in the presence of the Golden Hind replica in the harbour and the brand new 'Smugglers Story' 3D attraction. More up to date maritime adventures can be enjoyed with the plentiful fishing trips , cruises to Dartmouth and the regular ferry crossing to and from Torquay and Paignton.
As well as the great things to do in Brixham the whole area throngs with wonderful options for super days out. These include the award winning Paignton Zoo, the Babbacombe Model Village and Kent's Cavern in Torquay and do not miss the scenic steam train from Paignton to Dartmouth or a trip to nearby mysterious Dartmoor. For the more adventurous the Crealy Adventure Park and Woodlands Family Theme park offer thrills and spills in equal measure.
