English Riviera

From Openwaterpedia

The English Riviera is a series of picturesque, south-coast harbour towns including Torquay, Paignton, and Brixham. The South West Coast Path follows the coastline, taking in the towering cliffs of the northern Exmoor Coast and rock formations on the fossil-rich southern Jurassic Coast.

Torbay is a borough in Devon, England, administered by the unitary authority of Torbay Council. It consists of 62.87 square km (24.27 square miles) of land, spanning the towns of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham, located around an east-facing natural harbour (Tor Bay) on the English Channel. A popular tourist destination with a tight conurbation of resort towns, Torbay's sandy beaches, mild climate and recreational and leisure attractions have given rise to the nickname of the English Riviera.
