Internationally renowned water sports are held in the bay, with the marina providing excellent mooring facilities for luxury yachts and motor cruisers. Within easy reach are many scenic walks along South Devon's coastal footpaths, with local golf courses also nearby. A short distance to the north lies the magnificent Dartmoor National Park.
Torquay is well served with direct rail links to the major cities. The county capital of Exeter is now a quick commute thanks to the recently opened South Devon Link Road and Exeter airport has flights to many European and international destinations.
