Little Oddicombe Beach Closure

Update - Spring 2014

Following the rockfalls last year at Little Oddicombe, we would remind people to avoid the area affected by the landslips. We have been advised by a geologist that further activity can be expected and therefore this area will remain closed for the forseeable future. It is important that members of the public heed the warnings signs.

One of the great beauties of Torbay is its unspoilt coastline offering some breathtaking views. Along a 22 mile stretch, over 20 safe beaches and secluded coves comprise the aptly named English Riviera. So whether you’re after a place to lay out your towel, build sandcastles, have a gentle paddle, explore a rock pool or just a quiet place to sit, you’re sure to find a beach to suit.
