Goodrington is a coastal village in Devon, England. It is situated in Torbay and lies between Torquay and Brixham, less than a mile to the south of Paignton.

Goodrington has a railway station, on the Paignton and Dartmouth Steam Railway, three beaches, a park with boating lake, various shops and other facilities.

To the south there is also a popular dog walking route running along the coast to Broadsands. This passes several good fishing spots and "Sugarloaf", a large hill with a great view of the Bay.

The village has two churches, St. Georges and the Goodrington Methodist Church. It is a very quiet place with roughly a thousand residents typically of an older demographic.

The village is home to the largest known Davey Elm in the UK Tree Register of the British Isles.]

In recent years there have been several attempts by the council to improve the village, including the addition of a village green complete with benches.
