Nothing much to see or do but a pleasant little town. As it was a cool windy day we didn’t venture to the seafront and perhaps had we have done my review might have been better. We are going back in a couple of days...More

Babbacome is such a lovely little village, everyone is so friendly and the ice creams there are amazing!! I come from Solihull and was so impressed by the lack of litter, especially on the beaches compared to most other places in the country! Highly reccommend
