Torquay harbour is definitely the heart of the town and it is just a short distance from the Muntham Apartments and Town House from which it can be reached in five minutes by car or in fifteen minutes on foot.
Gathered around the harbour are a superb array of bars, cafes and restaurants each of which are ideal locations from which to people watch and while away an hour or two in the sun. Guests at the Muntham Apartments and Town House are supplied with a comprehensive list of recommended venues for both daytime and nightime dining and drinking.
From the harbourside the promenade runs off towards the Princess Theatre and then beyond to Torre Abbey Gardens and the superb Abbey itself with its magnificent walled garden set among the ruins of the original abbey.
Torquay's main beach, Torre Abbey Sands, is nearby. At low tide a vast expanse of sand is exposed and the beach is ideal for families as there is only a very gradual slope out to sea and water is very shallow.
