Swimming Torbay

Swimming spot: Livermead Head and the Hindu Temples, Torbay, Devon

Devon authors Matt Newbury and Sophie Pierce have published a new guidebook to magical swims in Torbay. Here they share one of their favourites.

This amazing swim starts near Institute Beach next to the Livermead Cliff Hotel (easy to spot as the establishment’s name is not so subtly marked in white paint on the seawalls below) and takes you right around to Hollicombe Beach past an unusual set of sea caves.
