Anyone know where best to launch for South Devon \Torbay

Guys, looking to go to Torbay- Start Point at the weekend. Looks like Teignmouth could be a good place or Torquay. I've done Torquay but thinking Teignmouth could be handy.

Has anyone launched Teignmouth? is it suitable without a 4x4 vehicle? is parking easy,etc

thanks
Mark

Polly Steps in Teignmouth is good to launch but slip can be a bit slippery at low tide. I have never had a problem launching the SR4 with a car. You can park at the slip but not too sure how much as the guy has never been there to pay.

I was out around there a few weeks ago saw dolphins at the mouth of the river.

Enjoy

Torquay's new slip is great and good for any tide
Just parking the car can be a pain if the multi is full

Easy parking at Paignton but no water 2hr either side of low tide

Should be a good weekend for it

Teignmouth is fine for a 2WD there are two slips however I have only used Polly Steps.
