This is a truly special place! It is so beautiful and is surrounded by lovely little walks on the coast path for example to Stackpole Quay and to the Lily Ponds. I had an amazing walk and saw so much wonderful wildlife.

Stunning beach with golden sands and beautiful blue sea. Visited recently on holiday and came across the bay during one of our Pembrokeshire coastal path walks. It was magical.

A beautiful beach, with lovely scenery around, blue sea and golden sands. It is always quiet when we go in March and September. Not easy to get to, but worth the trouble and the walk from either end of the lily ponds or Stackpole Quay is lovely too so make a day of it and include a visit to the... More

A great little walk from Stackpole Quay. Just park up and walk over to the Bay you will not be disappointed! There are quite a lot of steps down to the beach but worth it if you are able! The beach has been likened to the Caribbean, it certainly looks as good, especially as we were there on a beautiful... More

This beach really is very special. Having travelled extensively i can confidently say this beach is a stunner. It compared to some in the national aprks of costa rica! You must walk along the coastnpath to reach it but its not far and very very easy. The walk offers stunning views of the coast and wild flowers and bird life... More

Parked the car at the Stackpole Quay car park (free to NT members ref: SA71 5LS) and and did a lovely walk to Barafundle beach and continued to the end of the peninsular at Stackpole Head for the views. Retraced our steps back to the Boathouse at Stackpole Quay. This whole area is a true paradise for the walker and... More
