The Best of Torquay – Post-lockdown

Torquay Beach

Torquay Holiday Park is your home away from home to enjoy all that life has to offer post-lockdown. Breathe in the fresh air and feel the sand between your toes at one of the many beautiful beaches along the Surf Coast. Take a stroll around town and you will find plenty of things to do in Torquay. Alternatively, jump in the car for a short trip to explore some of the great food and local produce the region has to offer.

Spend a Day at the Beach

Coming out of lockdown you probably cannot wait to get out and discover somewhere different. Whether beach walking, swimming, surfing, or building sandcastles is your thing, Torquay has beautiful beaches for you to explore. For family fun close to town, Cosy Corner is a great place to start, or the white sands and towering rock faces at Point Addis offer a quieter spot, just a short drive out of town. If surfing is your thing, head to Bells Beach to experience some of the world’s best breaks and maybe spot a famous surfer.

Remember to slip, slop, slap to avoid those face mask tan lines!
