A Girls Weekend Guide to Torquay
On the English Riviera, Torquay is a stylish playground for short breaks on the English coast. Mixing beach culture with nightclubs, it’s perfect for a girls weekend away.
Where to Stay
For sun splashed short breaks in Torquay, The Cimon has it all – a touch of Mediterranean style, palm trees and a heated outdoor pool. Relax with the girls on the sunny patio and indulge in lazy afternoons with a drink from the poolside bar, or head down to Torre Abbey beach which is just yards away.
Treat yourself and your girlfriends on decadent short breaks to Torquay with a day at the Aztec Spa. For around £100, you can spend hours in the saunas and Jacuzzi and lunch at the bistro and treatments – like the Exotic Lime & Ginger Salt Glow – are included.
Hit the Beach
Torquay is one of the warmest places in the UK, with a balmy climate and a string of sandy beaches that make it ideal for short breaks by the sea. On the beautiful Torre Abbey Sands, you’ll feel like you’re in the Mediterranean rather than on a short break to Torquay!
Adventurous girls can take a surf lesson, hop a fishing boat to catch their dinner or hang tight to a banana boat. If sitting in the sun is more your style, there are lots of seafront bars along the trendy promenade where you can soak up both the sun and a few cocktails. Try Below Decks, a relaxed bistro with outside tables, tasty food and plenty of alcohol.
Short breaks in Torquay are also great for some retail therapy with the girls. Fleet Walk is a shopping complex on the harbor with enough stores and brands to satisfy any shopaholic. The Pavillion, meanwhile, is a more exclusive street with specialty shops and views over the marina.
The town is also well known for its buzzing nightlife scene – just the thing for disco divas looking for girls weekend away ideas! The party area is centered on the harbour where there are trendy restaurants and late night bars.
If your Torquay short break is all about dancing, don’t miss The Venue. Here, trendy DJs mix up classic hits with chart anthems and the party vibe will keep you on the dance floor all night. Bohemia has a more varied music taste from indie to RnB and the chance to hire VIP balconies for your group. For an indulgent night out on short breaks to Torquay, head to Koko Lounge, a classy nightclub with champagne cocktails and exotic dancers.
