Having driven around for what seemed like an absolute age, we finally came upon signs for Barafundle Bay. Even so, I still wasn't sure that we were heading in the right direction upon exiting the car park as it is quite a walk to get to the beach itself. However, it is well worth the tricky location; the beach is... More

We were touring the Pembrokeshire coastline and wanted to take in as many of the coves and hidden beaches that we could, the signposts to get to the various Stackpole estates grounds aren't that brilliant so you have to persevere in order to find them but when you do this particular place is a truely hidden gem and must rank...

I walked to this beach via the coastal path. Despite tricky location - went there on recommendation of friend. What can you say. A vast beach with beautiful whitish gold sands, clean and clear blue green sea. Going in October - it was very quiet. I am told it gets very crowded in August. Felt like in the tropics. I... More

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
