Are These the Best Car Park Views in the World?
We all know South Devon is stunning and to prove the point, we had to share the views from our humble car parks. Quite literally some of the best views in the world as you try to reverse park between the lines! Can you think of any better?
1. Torquay Marina Car Park - 10-12 Vaughan Rd, Torquay TQ2 5EQ
Located alongside the beautiful coast of Torquay beach, this car park overlooks Torquay’s yacht filled harbour whilst being closely located to all of the best sight seeings of the Bay. It’s one of the best car parks in terms of easy access to the town centre, restaurants and the beach!
2. Beacon Quay Car Park - Beacon Hill, Torquay TQ1 2BG
Being close to Torquay Marina car park, Beacon Quay has the upper hand in terms of views. Located slightly higher up and next door to Living Coasts, you can see further out along the coastline and more of a view of Torquay beachfront. This car park even has better views than most restaurants and hotels!
3. Daddyhole Plain Car Park - 5 Daddyhole Rd, Torquay TQ1 2EF
Talking about views, Daddyhole Plain smashes the other car parks out of the water. We take this spot for granted with it’s beautiful and breathtaking views of the Bay - you can see for miles as well as being to locate all of Torbay’s towns within the curved beach bay. This is the starting point of many long walks for hikers and dog walkers, seeing the stunning views along the way.
4. Babbacombe Beach Car Park - Beach Rd, Torquay TQ1 3LX
Babbacombe Beach is more of a smaller car park, however it is ideal for people who paddle board, fish, kayak and scuba dive as its easy access to the water. Despite the very steep hill going down to the car park, once you’re there it’s nothing but outstanding views of Babbacombe beach - it’s also known for seeing seals! Being right next to the Cary Arms restaurant, this makes it easier for people to go and have some food and drink without having to walk the steep hill.
Torbay is one of the most stunning locations for views and we’re lucky enough to even see them by doing the smallest thing like parking our cars! If you know or see anymore spectacular parking views, then give us a tag - @TheShorely.
