More Information...

Part of the aptly named 'English Riviera', Goodrington Sands is a highly accessible and very popular beach near Paignton. The beach is divided into two sections: the quieter North beach and the more popular South Beach. For visitors bringing along dogs, it is important to note that from May until the end of September dogs are only allowed on the North Beach. The soft, golden-red sand and shallow water make this Blue Flag awarded beach a well-visited destination, especially in the summer months. Each day the beach is raked for pebbles, stones and seaweed and in the summer lifeguards are on duty to patrol the water. This safe and clean environment makes Goodrington Sands especially popular with families. Activity options at Goodrington Sands are almost endless. Visitors can choose from a variety of watersports, including pedalos for hire, paddle boats and windsurfing. The UK's largest waterpark, Quaywest Waterpark, is also located virtually on the beach. Eight waterslides, a small splash pool and a swimming pool make Quaywest the perfect place to cool down. For those who aren't seeking an adrenaline rush, Goodrington Sands also offers a beach restaurant and cafe as well as sun loungers, beach huts and deck chairs for hire. At low tide, Goodrington Sands' most popular activity becomes available: rock-pooling. Before you go, consider making a stop at the popular Seashore Centre first. Located within easy walking distance of the beach, at Goodrington Park, the centre is full of information on what kinds of animals are commonly found in the beach's rock pools. Afterwards, go explore the pools for yourself!
