Enjoyed the walk across the cliffs ,and watching the mad people swimming in the sea . A nice wide bay scenic views from the cliff top . Ample parking for winter but I think it could be a little overcrowded in summer .

On a nice day, even the walk to Barafundle is enough to amaze. Stunning green countryside and sheer cliff faces. The beach itself is tranquil and unspoilt with soft sand and blue seas. A definite must when visiting the area.

White sand beach? Crystal clear turquoise blue-green sea? Completely unpolluted? In Wales? WALES??????? On a hot summers day, yes, you better believe it! Only its fellow Celtic cousin in Cornwall at beaches such as Porthcurno can match the elegance and paradisal setting of this other wordly setting. Who needs the Caribbean when you've got South West Wales? The New World... More

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...
