Goodrington Sands Beach in Paignton is at the heart of the English Riviera, midway between Brixham and Torquay, a safe sandy award winning family beach where you can hire pedalos, sun loungers, beach huts or deck chairs, or go for a stroll through the gardens on the cliffs, which are lit up at dusk, to Paignton harbour. Goodrington also has two secluded coves just over half a kilometre from Goodrington Sands beach and these are Saltern Cove and Oyster Cove.
