Breakwater Beach

Breakwater is a small shingle beach adjacent to picturesque Brixham harbour. It has easy disabled access with adequate parking at the back of the beach, close to the main facilities associated with a large town resort.

Torbay, as well as a popular family holiday resort, has, over recent years, become really popular with the diving community. It has many beaches suitable as places to learn and others for the more experienced diver where you can enjoy more challenging wreck diving. The beach at Breakwater has great access and the water itself looks incredibly blue and inviting! There is a good level of amenities, including a nice café/restaurant with superb views across the bay.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use. Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
