and Coastal Path
Welcome to our page on the
best beaches in Pembrokeshire.
Here in Pembrokeshire, we’re home to over 100 beaches within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
The beaches and coastal paths are famous for their clean, water, white sand, cliffs, and sand dunes.
At low tide, a huge expanse of firm sand is revealed with plenty of room for everyone – which is busy during the summer months due to its safe bathing.
A mile and a half long, dune-backed, beach playground. There are acres of beach at low tide but still plenty of room at high tide fun, for all the family.
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 sand and rocky beach is the hunting ground of the surfer always on the lookout for that perfect wave.
A wide bay of golden sand backed by dunes with a stream running through the beach at its southern end.
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.
Lydstep Haven is a very pretty, privately owned beach consisting of sand and pebbles and backed by impressive wooded cliffs at either end.
‘Enormous’ is the only way to describe this beach; it’s almost 2 miles of sand backed by a huge pebble bank formed after a BIG storm in 1859.
East Angle Bay
A little-visited bay of wide sand and mud flats. This is an important feeding area for waders and, consequently, is a perfect place for birdwatching.
Aberbach is a small pebble beach but at low tide golden sand is revealed. It’s a great place to watch seals playing or, when the wind gets up, the waves crashing on the shore.
A long narrow picturesque inlet, sheltered from the prevailing winds makes it ideal for kayakers and boats. There is a charge for launching boats which helps pay for village amenities.
Church Doors Cove
A small sand and rocky cove with magnificent towering cliffs cut by the forces of the sea into a huge ‘door’. Access to this beach is at low tide only and via the coastal path only.
