Goodwick Sands is an attractive little beach of sand and shingle. It sits enclosed near the Parrog in Goodwick, Fishguard. The beach is brilliant for very little children to explore for shells and pebbles and they should keep their eyes peeled out to sea for a seal or two bobbing about in the bay. The ferry crossing to Ireland happens at the other end of the bay so you can watch Goodwick burst into life as people come off the ferry.
Closer to the beach you can take advantage of Oceanlab. This centre offers information on the area, a soft play area inside for small children, a great cafe with homemade cakes, and an interactive ocean experience for school children. Outside there is plenty of parking and a children’s outdoor play area over looking the beach where there are also picnic tables too.
While you are on holiday in Pembrokeshire you could try your hand at kayaking. Mayberry Kayaking offer kayak hire and trips from Goodwick. Join in with them and enjoy bobbing and bouncing around in the bay with the seals. Otherwise, Goodwick sands is also good for a range of water sports such as canoeing and windsurfing.
Goodwick is also good for a spot of light fishing, head out along the breakwater and join in with the other fisherman. It is particularly popular for fishing in the late afternoon and early evening. If you don’t feel like catching your dinner then you can pick up some Fish and Chips on the hill near the ferry terminal. Gary’s takeaway is very popular with locals and also offers Indian food. While you wait see if you can hear the famed Goodwick brass band rehearse just around the corner in their green hut! Then why not enjoy your chips out at the lighthouse in Strumble head or simply stroll along the break water and watch the sunset on the Fishguard Bay. If you would like to have a restaurant meal then the Hope and Anchor Inn also offer a good choice of food and a warm welcome.
