Beautiful beach, totally unspoilt, sheltered. Be aware that the road to get to Stackpole Quay is very narrow, with blind bends and little passing room, so I would go in a small car. It is also a 10-15 minute walk across fields from the car park. It was quite hard work with a 3 year old and bags of picnic,... More

Best beach we went to in Pembroke. Sand was so nice, nearest car park is a national trust one in Stackpole Quay then about a 5 min walk to the beach. Car park £5 but can use at other national trust like lily ponds. Really recommend the cafe too, brilliant lunches and scones.

Well worth the drive down to the coast and the little trek to get to this secluded, but popular beach. Safe for children and beautiful backdrop with the coastal rocks and tree line on one side. This place really catches the sun and is sheltered from the wind making the whole experience a pleasing one. Ideal for families but take... More

Kittiwakes, gillimaks, and beautiful ocean. What could you possibly not love! The only problem was the narrow roads to the generous parking lot.

A marvellous beach. You have to walk there and the nearest car park is 1/2 mile away at Stackpole Quay, where there is a cafe. This distance helps keeps the crowds down.

Bit of a hike but well worth it. Take only the essentials if you have younger children, as at the end of the day Mum and Dad end up carrying it all back to the car! Lovely sandy beach and if weather is good crystal blue sea

Well worth the 15 min walk to get there. Sea clear blue and golden sands. Uncrowded and unspoiled . No life guards present this might be a cause of concern for some.

We reached this beach by walking up from the National Trust Car park at Stackpole Quay. It is not too long a walk, but there are quite a few steps and it's up and down across the fields on top of the Pembrokeshire cliffs. Not difficult, but the less firm might struggle a bit. At the end you fins yourself... More

The walk was great and the beech is beautiful. It's such a relaxing place to go and visit. Definitely worth it.

Great views, blustery winds didn't detract from the walk one bit! Quiet, picturesque and beautiful. Do try the Boathouse cafe at south pole quay too. Enjoy
