It's a gorgeous little beach, nothing but sand and sea and the mountains around. It's quite a walk to it over the picturesque costal path, toilets are at the start so it's advisable to use before you go down otherwise it's the sea! But it is stunning place, looks like somewhere you'd find in a holiday brochure. You can approach... More

Superb beach only accessible by foot, short easy walk, some steps to access beach but not too steep or troublesome.

What a wonderful find, a place of beauty. No sun loungers, not many people just lovely pale sound and turquoise water, bliss. Not suitable if you're unable to walk very well, as you have to climb some steps, walk across grass along the top of the cliffs and then down steps to the beach, so if visiting remember what you...

Spent a few happy hours on this lovely sandy beach. It was well worth the walk from the car park which was spectacular. At low tide we were able to explore the amazing caves and rock formations to the left of the beach. Though a bit chilly - as you'd expect - the sea was so incredibly clear it could've... More

This review is for the National Trust here as a whole. POOR!! Very few signposts to make sure people are going in the right direction. We used the NT app to get an overview, which showed going to the experience centre for directions... This is the worst place to try and drive to! Better/nearer parking to the beaches, etc, is...

Just before we left home for Tenby our friend recommended we visit Barafundle Bay during our, in fact it was a bit of a wind up as she knows we don't do trekking! On the drive down we thought she really had wound us up and lived in hope that no one came in the opposite direction, mainly due to... More

T.he Verdict: Amazing! If there were pedalos, we could've mistaken it for Spain or Greece. The aqua shade of the water, the clear blue skies and the white soft sand is utter perfection. After the endless country lanes, you do eventually reach the car park. From there, there's pathway walks, approx 30 step climb and mountain-top treks. When you get... More

Well worth the 4+ hour drive to this nice secluded little beach. The pictures don't do it any justice at all Nice clear sea and golden sand, didn't expect to find anything like this anywhere in england/wales. The only down side was that when we were visiting , there was a few pretty big jellyfish washed up so If you're... More

Stunning, stunning, stunning......that's all you need to know really!! Powder sands, beautiful sea, cliffs, dunes......no tea shops, bars, ice cream parlour, bucket and spade shops etc, etc. Take your own food/drink, although little national trust cafe at the car park was good. Turn off the phone, (no wifi or signal when we visited) and just enjoy!! Short walk over the... More

It is a fair walk but very scenic all the way to the beach and once arrived the view on top of the steps is wonderful. The beach itself is one of the best anywhere Pembrokeshire at its best.
