Close to Paignton is the long, sandy stretch of Goodrington Sands. With a Quality Coast Award, safe swimming conditions and loads of great activities, this family friendly beach promises to keep the kids happy whatever the weather.
So what can you do at Goodrington Sands? The first thing that springs to mind is watersports! No strong currents makes this a great place to swim, and there are a number of different hire options available, with pedaloes, paddle boats and even windsurfing for beginners.
If you’re planning to explore the rock pools at low tide, don’t forget to visit the Seashore Centre first. Here you can learn more about the English Riviera’s sea-life and Geopark through interactive displays. After arming yourself with information, you’ll know precisely what you’ve found lurking under the seaweed!
For family fun beyond the beach, there’s a crazy golf course and lots of amusement arcades. Close by is Splashdown @ Quaywest Waterpark, where eight flumes, a swimming pool and a toddler’s play area ensure a fun filled day for all the family. While you’re there, why not check out Ski West? This outdoor watersport activity organisation offers activities such as ringos and waterskiing, a must for adrenaline-junkies!
A great day out
Goodrington Sands is a great day out for the whole family. There’s a beautiful sandy beach with room for everyone, clean, calm waters to swim in, and lots of activities to try. For a classic seaside holiday you won’t forget, visit the English Riviera, South Devon’s beautiful bay.
