I advise people not keen on the amusements and shops in Torbay Road to make their way to Paignton Harbour and then the walk round Roundham Head to Goodrington Sands for a quiet and very pleasant stroll with beautiful sea views.

Magical views over Torbay. On a sunny evening there is none better in the whole country. From the views to Brixham to the views over to Torquay it is a magical place to sit and ponder.
