Very good beach, very clean and clear water. Rated 4 stars due to the long 15 minute walk from the car park up to the beach, but other than that there is stunning views and worth the effort.

Beautiful place to visit but need to have sturdy footwear walking to the beach flip flops is not ideal to be walking in. Cameras are strongly recommended as it really is a stunning part of the world and if you are in the national trust you don't have to pay for parking.

Be aware that this beach is not easily accessible for the less mobile of us. I have a severely arthritic hip condition and I struggled to keep up with my far fitter young wife as we climbed up from the car-park at Barafundle Quay, and across the fields to reach the lookout over this stunningly beautiful beach. Whilst we were... More

Barafundle has actually won awards for this! I would give it 5 dots but it's difficult to access: the coastal path walk with many steps following the cliff; the car park with deep steps thru the dunes; or by sea! The toilets are up in the car park so go before descending. It's not for the physically challenged! Once there... More

Park up at Stackpole (parking doesn't cost much if I remember correctly) and set off on foot up onto the top fields, from where you will get beautiful views over the Bristol Channel and out into the Atlantic, before eventually coming to one of the most beautifully hidden beaches I have been to. You have to access it via a... More

This a lovely, and fairly secluded beach which you can walk to across the cliff. Would be a great place in Summer

One of the finest beaches you'll find anywhere, Barafundle is approached on foot down a steep path that gives you incredible views of this tiny stretch of golden sand. It is a fair walk from the car park, but this takes in great views over the Bristol Channel and beyond. It is still unspolit by commercialism (for the time being),... More
