A traditional seaside setting with award-winning Blue Flag beaches and popular pier.
Paignton is perfect for a traditional seaside holiday and is home to some fantastic award-winning Blue Flag beaches including Paignton Beach with its popular pier.
Grab your bucket and spade and build sandcastles with your littles ones or enjoy messing about on the water with paddle boats and canoes. Not forgetting the fun to be had at nearby Splashdown Waterpark.
