Vessel Interaction in Tor Bay Harbour
With 20 accessible beaches within Tor Bay there is something for everyone.
Tor Bay is well-known for its beautiful beaches and has a wide variety, from easily accessed large, sandy stretches with full amenities, to secluded shingle coves ideal for sunbathing or exploring.
With one of the highest concentrations of Blue Flags and beach awards for cleanliness in England, you won’t be disappointed. Swimming is a joy in the summer months and many swim throughout the year from the Bay’s golden sands. At Shoalstone Beach there is a
renovated art deco sea pool for those seeking a safe haven for swimming.
From May to September inclusive, beaches are protected by a 5 Knot speed restriction to protect swimmers and small craft users.
