Goodwick is a coastal town in Pembrokeshire, Wales, immediately west of its twin town of Fishguard.

Originally planned to be the end of the Great Western Railway's line and their major sea port, problems with the design of the harbour prevented the larger ocean liners from docking. The port now accommodates a ferry and (seasonal) catamaran service to Rosslare in Ireland operated by Stena Line. The Harbour is known as Fishguard Harbour even though it is situated in Goodwick NOT Fishguard. There seems to be a trend in Fishguard claiming Goodwick's main attractions, another would be the beautiful hotel that overlooks Goodwick harbour which is called Fishguard Bay Hotel, again situated in Goodwick. Some fishing takes place on a small scale although most activity in the county occurs in Milford Haven.

The first successful flight from Britain to Ireland was made from Goodwick or more specifically Harbour Village on 22 April 1912 by Denys Corbett Wilson, flying a Bleriot XI. The flight lasted one hour 40 minutes, with landfall near Enniscorthy, Ireland.

The main industry is now tourism, although in the town's industrial past, brick making was an important industry.
