BEACHES

Beautiful beaches stretch the Pembrokeshire coastline including those at Tenby, Saundersfoot and Manorbier:

Tenby Beaches
Tenby doesn’t just have one beach – it has four. The two main beaches of North and South, are at either end of the town while Harbour and Castle beach is the nearest to the town centre. When the tide is out you can (almost) walk between all four beaches.

1. Castle Beach, Tenby: At high tide, this beach disappears completely, but if you hit it at the right time you can find a beautiful, sandy stretch in the cove between Castle Hill and East Cliff, perfect for swimming and paddling. The beach is backed by towering cliffs, where you can go rock pool hunting and cave exploring, and as the closest to the town – it’s ideal for families who don’t want to venture too far. Enclosed by Castle Hill and St Catherine’s Island, and Caldey Island in the distance, it’s a picture-perfect setting to enjoy a classic beach day. At low tide, you can catch a boat to Caldey Island that lies 0.6 miles off Tenby. To purchase tickets, head up the slipway to the harbour.

2. North Beach, Tenby: Instantly recognisable thanks to the magnificent Goskar rock in the middle, the view of North Beach with the harbour behind is probably the most well-known of Tenby. Looking out over Carmarthen Bay, when the tide is out, this beach offers a magnificent stretch of sand to play on and as it’s relatively sheltered misses out on the windiest weather.

3. South Beach, Tenby: The mile and a half long South Beach is a beautiful stretch of sand that looks like something you might find in Australia or the Mediterranean. Backed by magnificent sand dunes, there’s more than enough space for you to enjoy – at low and high tide – and is perfect for a family day at the beach. Looking out over Caldey Island and Carmarthen Bay, on clear days you can see as far as the Gower or even North Devon.

4. Harbour Beach, Tenby: Harbour Beach is often overlooked but is a real gem!. Head to the harbour at low tide, and between the boats and the old town walls, you’ll find a small, golden stretch of sand. Perfect for those with small children - the compact beach has great views of the harbour and old town.

Manorbier Beach (6.4 miles/16 minutes) - Overlooked by the famous medieval castle, this sandy, south-westerly facing beach is a favourite among families, perfect for rock-pooling and for water activity enthusiasts.

Freshwater West Beach (18 miles/32 min drive) is a surfers paradise and featured in Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood along with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Known for being one of the most beautiful beaches in Pembrokeshire as well as one of the best surfing spots, Freshwater West has something to offer everyone. Divided from the road by huge sand dunes that roll into the surrounding landscapes, the extensive stretch of sand is edged at the south by dramatic cliffs and even at high tide, feels vast.

Barafundle Bay Beach (12 miles/30 min drive) is an absolutely stunning, small bay backed by dunes and pine trees, accessible only by a half mile walk from the nearest car park - a short but stunning trek through the forest and over a lake before you arrive at Barafundle's golden sands.

Broad Haven North and South Beaches (22.5 miles/38 min drive). Sitting in the southeast corner of St Bride’s Bay, Broad Haven is a large, west-facing beach ideal for families and water sport enthusiasts to enjoy. At high tide, the beach becomes a narrow stretch of sand and pebbles, but when the tide goes out; you can find a great expanse of golden sand that links together Broad Haven with the neighbouring Little Haven and another bay, The Settlands.

Monkstone Beach (3.5 miles/11 min drive). You might be surprised to find a remote and quiet beach nestled between the popular seaside towns of Saundersfoot and Tenby, but Monkstone is just that. The easterly facing sandy stretch feels isolated and unspoiled thanks to its location and is great to visit if you want some time away from the crowds. Again, this is another beach that’s tide dependent so check before you go otherwise there could be a very little beach to visit.
