With views to Torquay, Paignton, Goodrington beaches and beyond this is an amazing spot in the Bay to enjoy expansive views. Everyday you visit the light, cloud, tides and wind make it special place to enjoy time to yourself, family or friends

Lovely safe location for a peaceful walk through the gardens on the cliff edge. Good views, plenty of photo opportunities. Look out for the Memorial for the WW2 RAF Fighter pilot.

Walked back to Paignton from Goodrington on Sunday afternoon, stunning views. Would have benefited from a few way marks to guide me as to which path to take, it thankfully met a few locals who told me which way to go.

Peaceful, picturesque, well maintained gardens with wonderful views over to both Torquay and Brixham. Just a few minutes walk from Paignton sea front, well worth the effort!

I advise people not keen on the amusements and shops in Torbay Road to make their way to Paignton Harbour and then the walk round Roundham Head to Goodrington Sands for a quiet and very pleasant stroll with beautiful sea views.
