Breakwater is a small shingle beach next to the picturesque Brixham Harbour and the long breakwater.
With its calm warm waters it is a favourite for scuba diving. There are fish, seahorses, seagrass and interesting underwater landscapes to be seen.
As the beach is right next to the bustling harbour side, there are shops and cafes on hand. The café has superb views across the bay.
