Abbey sands

Wesup Abbey Sands is the ultimate paddle board destination for beginners in South Devon. We offer access to the magic of the English Rivera UNESCO Global Geopark from the ocean by paddle board or kayak. You will experience panoramic views of Torbay from your paddle board from this wonderfully sheltered cove, making it a perfect place to take your first step onto the water.  We are conveniently placed for locals on Torquay seafront and within walking distance of many popular hotels. For tourists visiting Torbay looking to make a day of it, you can find the popular attractions, bars and restaurants nearby.

What we offer

Find us at the heart of the English Riviera on one of Torbay’s most beautiful sandy beaches,  Torre Abbey Sands. With natural reef and kelp forests found lining the cove, it is a stunning location to learn to paddle board or glide through the crystal clear Devon Sea on a kayak!

If you are looking for things to do in the Torbay, our paddle board and kayak offering has something for everyone. Our lessons, tours and hire sessions are truly incredible and will stay in your memories for all time to come. We promise you, this is a truly unique way to explore the English Riviera.
