Great place to walk to

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

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

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

We visited Barafundle a few weeks ago. We were so lucky, the weather was just perfect. Barafundle is a very special place, we decided to go early and so glad we did, not another sole on the beach when we arrived. We walked down through the woods and then back via Stackpole Quay for a lovely hot chocolate with all... More

Absolutely my favourite beach ever. Remote, few people and stunningly beautiful. OK, it was end of October but sun was out and sea was warmest ( not remotely warm though). Walk was manageable with three kids from Stackpole Quay. We'll be back.

Having had mixed weather in Wales, we decided we would still give it a go. We were not disappointed. The beach is beautiful and the vista fantastic. The cliffs that surround it meant that it was quite sheltered as well. Our boys (9 and 6) loved it and thought it exciting to go across the cliffs to get to it.

We did the costal walk here about 12 miles in total and this beach was part of it. Not going to say much except it was the most beautiful beach I've ever been too. And I live in Wales and have a lot to choose from

Even on a brisk day in October you can appreciate how lovely this beach is. The half mile walk from the nearest car park means that only those who really want to be there will bother but it's beautiful - just don't tell anyone about it !
