Welcome to Goodrington Sands in the holiday resort of Paignton in Torbay, affectionately known as "The English Riviera" in the beautiful shire of South Devon. [ Videos of Paignton ]
At the heart of the English Riviera, Goodrington Sands is well known as a safe family holiday destination, with a gently sloping sandy beach, which is well managed every morning by tractor, tides permitting, to remove seaweed and stones washed up by the sea.
Goodrington Sands has all the normal facilities like beach huts, deck chairs, sunloungers and pedalo hire and also has beach manager supervision and a first aid centre during the main season.
Goodrington Sands is also famous for the steam railway which runs adjacent to the sea, and can be boarded here at Goodrington Station for a journey along the picturesque South Devonshire coast line to Kingswear, where you can cross the River Dart by ferry over to Dartmouth.
Goodrington Sands also has a park with boating lake, nature reserve, go-karts and crazy golf and has a history dating back to the sixteenth century. There is also the old navel hospital from the Napoleonic war which is now a family friendly eatery pub which is part of the Brewer´s Fayre chain with plenty of outside seating taking in the breathtaking views of the bay.
Goodrington Sands Beach is one of the few, if only, main beaches in Torbay on the English Riviera where you have a choice of enjoying a beach where there are no dogs allowed, or a part of the beach where dogs are allowed.
Goodrington Sands Beach (North) is dog friendly where dogs are allowed on the beach off lead all year round, they are also allowed off lead on the promenade and also in Goodrington Park which is adjacent to the beach.
Goodrington Sands Beach (South) has a dog ban from 1st May to 30th September, but they are allowed on the promenade on lead.
Just a few hundred metres from Goodrington Sands along the coast path is Saltern and Oyster Cove, which are accessed across a small stone bridge over the steam railway line to a grassed headland which has panoramic views across the whole of Torbay.
