We have visited here a few times on our family trips to Tenby. The beach is beautiful and the bay is lovely and secluded. It is about a 15 minute walk to the Bay from the National Trust Car Park at Stackpole Quay. There are no facilities at the beach. Toilets a small café and the ice cream stall are... More

No cars. No hotels. No coaches. Just National Trust owned beach. If you want beautiful sand, sand dunes, blue sea, a sheltered bay and seaside as it was thousands and thousands of years ago then this is the place. Totally unspoiled, peaceful and quiet. A bracing walk over the cliff tops, down the steps and onto the sand. Cross the... More

Lovely beach and stunning views especially walking to it from the car park in stackpole quay. It's a bit of effort to get to and from the beach with the kiddies (aged 1, 6 and 11) and all the food, buckets & spades etc but well worth it!

Spent a lovely day in Barafundle beach in the end of August. The cove is sheltered from winds, with clear water and clean sands. It is a little walk away from the National Trust carpark (free for members) and does not have a lifeguard or any other facilities, but take those into account and you'll have a lovely day!

One of the best beaches in Wales. Be prepared to walk at least a mile to get to it and don't expect any ice-cream vans!

Well worth the walk. This is a small gem hidden away by the elevated coastline around it, so the first view of it informs you what you are in for. One of the top beaches that doesn't get too crowded.

Probably the best beach in the UK. Stunning beach - clear blue sea and clean golden sand reached by a scenic walk along the clifftops. Well worth visiting after teatime when most people have gone home - car park is cheaper and beach is emptier!

Visit it earlier in the morning when there are less people around, fantastic, clean beach with great cliff views on your walk from the National trust car park. Well worth the £5 they charge. Also a cafe by the carpark where they do a good Welsh Rarebit.

Especially first thing in the morning. Even in height of school holidays beach was empty at 9am. So beautiful, safe and worth the walk from Stackpole. Boys had fun snorkeling around the rocks.
