Our Paignton Travel Guide includes… Places to stay, things to do and how to get to Paignton

This harbour town, nestled on the English Riviera, is a fantastic UK seaside resort.

Paignton beach and the nearby golden stretch of Preston Sands are popular spots for water sports like kite surfing, kayaking, and boating, whereas nearby Elberry Cove is a great place for jet skiers. Looking for more of a relaxed beach day instead? The secret sands of Fairy Cove are a top tip for escaping the crowd, as is rock pooling along the craggy shore at Saltern Cove.

With over 2,000 animals calling it home, Paignton Zoo is one of the town’s top attractions and has won awards for its environmental and conservation work. A holiday in Paignton wouldn’t be complete without a stroll along Paignton Pier, with its wonderful sea views and selection of shops and eateries. Find your holiday inspiration with our Paington Travel Guide.
