Cwm Yr Eglwys - Dinas
Set beneath the dramatic scene of the ruins of St Brynach's church, washed away in the great storm of 1859. Cwm yr Eglwys is a lovely sheltered inlet protected from the winds by Dinas head. Ideal for young children or those who wish to kayak or canoe in sheltered waters.
Poppit Sands - St Dogmaels
From the mouth of the river Teifi, this large expanse of sand stretches right across to Gwbert in Ceredigion. The beach has a large section of dunes to explore and is also popular fishing spot notably for Sewin and Bass.
Caerfai Bay - St Davids
A small rocky cove at high tide, sandwiched between towering cliffs 1 mile south of St Davids. The rocks around Caerfai are multi coloured with a mixture of grey, green and vivid pink.
At low tide a sandy beach is revealed with plenty of rock pools to explore. Beware as there are strong currents in the sea off Caerfai.
Pebbles and extraordinarily dark sand made of pounded grey slate form this rural beach. The same slate gives a brilliant deep blue colour to the water in the 'Blue Lagoon'; a beautiful little harbour - a breached quarry - just to the north of the beach.
A long, narrow sandy and pebble beach at high tide but at low tide a huge expanse of firm sand is revealed with plenty of room for everyone - and it can get busy during the summer months due to its safe bathing.
Tenby South Beach
Tenby is unique in that it offers three fantastic beaches. As well as the vast expanse of the south beach with a mile long stretch of sand, there are also the Castle and Harbour beaches each with alternative views and charm.
Broad Haven South Beach - Bosherston
A wonderful expanse of golden sand which leads onto the Bosherston lily ponds. A truly special place which is definitely worth a visit especially when the lilies are in full flower.
Whitesands Bay - St Davids
Overlooked by the imposing craggy hill of Carn Llidi, this wide expanse of fine white sand curves north towards the remote rocky headland of St Davids Head.
This is one of the best surfing beaches in the country and therefore very popular.
At almost 2 miles long this vast expanse of sand backed by a large pebble bank, which was deposited in the great storm of 1859. As it is slightly more exposed the beach is popular with kite surfers and surfers.
Blue Lagoon - Abereiddy
A close walk from Abereiddy bay are the ruins of the 'Blue Lagoon', a small slate quarry, now flooded by the sea having broken in.
The Blue Lagoon is 25m deep, according to a nearby Pembrokeshire National Park information board. Despite the name, the water is always a distinct greenish hue, owing to the mineral content within the quarry. The lagoon is a favourite for adventure groups practicing coasteering, and also diving.
Druidstone is a secluded long, sandy beach enclosed on three sides by steep cliffs.
There are some spectacular cliff formations; natural arches and caves to the north of the main beach but keep an eye on the sea as you can get cut off by the incoming tide.
Access to the beach is by the coastal path or two footpaths joining up with the lane that runs from Nolton Haven to Broad Haven.
Freshwater West - Near Castlemartin
The back drop of many block buster films, with its extensive dunes and rugged rocky out crops, Freshwater west is truly stunning. The south westerly facing beach has the best waves in the county BUT it’s only for the experienced and strong swimming surfer. Strong rip currents occur off this beach. It’s the best place to go to watch the surfing. - See more at:
Barafundle - Near Stackpole
A small bay backed by dunes and pine trees, accessible only by a half mile walk from the nearest car park. Swathes of golden sand and crystal clear waters, Barafundle has been voted many, many times as one of the best beaches in Britain and the world. This pristine beach is isolated which means no facilities; so everything you take has to come back up over the cliffs. -
