Torquay Harbour is situated on the North shore of Tor Bay and whilst benefiting from an expanding marine leisure industry, Torquay remains a fully commercial and busy Devonshire port. The Harbour is also on the fringe of the Town centre giving easy access to shops, restaurants and bars.
Haldon Pier to the South and Princess Pier to the West, form the main breakwaters and give shelter to the enclosed harbour facilities. Haldon Pier is regularly used by visiting yachts, pleasure boats, fishing vessels, HM Craft and other commercial workboats.
The outer harbour comprises of a 170 berth Town Dock pontoon facility and a 440-berth Marina. The Inner Harbour lies behind a cill and bridge, impounding the water at half tide level and is home to 200 pontoon finger berths for boats up to 9.14 metres long. Access to the inner harbour is subject to tides, with entry via a bridge/cill which stops the inner harbour from drying out at low water.
To the west of Torquay Harbour lies the Princess Theatre and Torre Abbey Sands.
