Whether your next Paignton Holiday is a family affair or just a short break away from the kids, there’s always something to do here.
Paignton is part of the English Riviera in the Torbay area of South Devon. It’s a town that has everything you would expect from a traditional seaside resort, and much more. Here are our top 3 things to make a Paignton holiday memorable.
Play Adventure Golf at Pirates Bay
If you or your children like crazy golf, this 18 hole course takes it to a new level. If you like water shots you’ll find plenty of holes to test your putting skills. The kids will love playing “spot the pirate” as you work your way around islands, shipwrecks and other pirate wonders.

Quay West Splashdown Waterpark
No Paignton holiday would be complete without a visit to Splashdown Waterpark, which is located at Goodrington Beach. It is the largest exterior water park in Britain and has eight thrilling flume rides.
For adrenalin junkies, there is Devil’s Drop, the Screamer and Wild Kamikaze but these water slides are not for the feint hearted. Check out the flumes by clicking on Splashdown Waterpark
For those who prefer a more relaxing swimming experience there are sun terraces and pools. There are also two children’s pools, ideal for kids below 7 years old.
Dinosaur World – Torquay
Just an 18 minute drive away is Dinosaur World in Torquay. This is a fantastic place to visit if it rains because all the dinosaurs reside inside. Both adults and children can enjoy an exciting and educational experience as the Dinosaur era comes to life. As well as walking with dinosaurs in a Jurassic Park type environment, you can also learn how palaeontologists do their work. With hands on experience you’ll be able to discover fossils, bones and other ‘artefacts’ in the excavation site areas.
Everyone can participate in a Dinosaur World quiz which involves members of your team finding answers by exploring the exhibition. If you do well you’ll be awarded a ‘Dinosaur Expert Certificate’.
If you are feeling really brave, you can sit on one of the dinosaurs!
Choosing a Paignton holiday provides you with relaxing sun, sea and sand to enjoy between adventures, during the summer. There are plenty of self catered apartments available that make holidays in this beautiful area more affordable. But don’t leave it until the last minute because they are at a premium during the season.
