This is a beautiful cliff top town which is very wheelchair friendly . There are lots of seats overlooking the sea with views looking across to exmouth and beyond. The main shopping street is pedestrianised with mainly individual businesses. The cliff top has nice gardens...More

We lived in the Bay some years ago and always knew Hanburys as a normal Fish & Chip shop par excellence. This was our first visit to the Restaurant. Our expectations were met and possibly surpassed. Superb meal!

This is a lovely place to drive through or to stop off for a walk. There are plenty of shops and cafes. We visited Bygones museum which is highly recommended. We also went to Torre Abbey where they currently have a Tattoo Exhibition showing

Nice to have a little walk across the beach. Very pretty. Stopped off for an hour or so. Parking was very reasonable but the drive down to the beach was a hair-raising experience. Suggest park at the top and get the cliff cable car down.
