The Goodrington swim is very safe and protected from bad weather.I'ts easy to access by parking at the Goodrington beach carpark. A few minutes walk to the slipway to enter the swim with ease. There is a sandy bottom which makes it very inviting and soft on the feet. There is a reef in front of the premier inn where you swim above pretty rock formations and different types of seaweed.There are also triathlon buoys in the bay to make it easy to circumnavigate 1500 meters in the bay and to use the buoys as sighting buoys to help with navigation.We follow the coast and at mid to low tide we can hug the coast for newtimers for a confidence boost. We can swim as far as the white house on the cliff on the other side of Goodrington beach. A longer venture which is fun is to swim to broadsands (1 mile) and back. You pass armchair rock on the way with lots of sheltered coves to navigate between on the way.
