Goodwick Sands is a beach of mainly shingle, mussel shells and some coarse sand, with seaweed-strewn rocks on the lower shore. It's backed by a sea wall of boulders and the main A40 to Fishguard Harbour. Toilets and a pub are nearby, whilst a few hundred yards away, a modern building houses a cafe and a children's attraction called Ocean Lab. The recently re-opened Fishguard & Goodwick rail station is within easy walking distance, and Fishguard town is a short distance to the east, and has further shops, banks and a modern leisure centre with a 25 metre pool..
Parking is free. A few spaces overlook the beach and a larger car park is on the opposite side of the A40.
Dog restrictions apply from 1st May to 30th September; dogs are banned from the furthest (in the photo) section of the beach, must be on leads on the next section and are allowed everywhere else.
