Goodrington Beach

The soft, golden red sand and calm shallow water make this beach a favourite destination for locals and tourists, especially in the summer. It has supervision during the summer months making it much safer for families and at low tide the rock pools are exposed which are great to explore.

The local steam train can also be seen running along the back of south sands beach.
