Excellent beach, one of pembrokeshires best, a 15 minute walk to the beach but effort well rewarded. No facilities so take what you need with you, and take your rubbish home to keep this beach unspoilt. One of my favourite beaches.

Relatively isolated large cove like beach along the coast from Stackpole. Lovely setting but it's at least 15 minutes walk from any parking and you will need to take any food and drink with you. Very much worth the effort though.

This is a wonderful large clean beach with golden sand. Dogs are allowed on the beach and in the water, but should be on a lead. There is a lovely walk over the sand dunes from the cafe to the beach, but it is well worth it.

The walk across the fields in the drizzle from the National Trust car park was soooo worth it - the views from the hilltop looking down were stunning. The steps leading down are a bit awkward and you need to keep your wits about you, however, once you are down you can get your breath back sat on the rocks... More

We parked at Stackpole Quay and walked across the grassy cliff top track, with stunning views of the coastline, to the amazing Barfundle Bay. This is definitely something to put on a "bucket list" of things you should do! However, the beach cannot be reached by car and the number of steps up at Stackpole Quay and down at Barafundle...

Gorgeous beach - well worth the walk to access it. It is surrounded by sand dunes and has rocky areas which would be great for rock pooling. Some craggy rocks which were great to photograph as was a windy day and the waves were crashing!! We walked through the forest at the back of the beach and back along the... More

We read a lot about this beach and it truly lived up to its billing. There is a lovely tearoom before the 10 min walk to the beach. Quite a few steps so not suitable for all. Great for families and those with dogs, a great coastal walk. A must see.

We'd heard a lot about this beach before we arrived so expectations were high, but I have to say we weren't disappointed. Walking from the Stackpole Quay car park this bay suddenly appears in all its glory in front of you. We must have spent 2 hours on the beach, even in the rain, exploring the rocks and caves on...
