Paignton, a traditional family resort, where all the fun revolves around the seafront. Long sandy beaches provide a safe haven for children and adults alike. There is a level seafront and the pier houses all the amusements you would expect from a typical seaside resort. Along the seafront you will find an array of pubs and café bars with the town centre nearby. At the southern end of Paignton you will find the lively harbour where you can enjoy a boat trip, or simply take a leisurely stroll.
