Beautiful unspoilt beach only accessible by a fairly long walk. Definitely worth the effort though. There are no facilities here, just a lovely stretch of sand in a sheltered bay. One of the best beaches in Wales.

I'd heard great things about this beach from friends who'd been before, locals and reviews here and we weren't disappointed. The NT car park is £5 all day and the beach is a 10 minute walk away (with two under 10s, a dog and bags). Yes there are a few steps to contend with but they shouldn't be a problem.... More

Easily accesses: 15 min walk that even the elderly could manage. The walk there is over green fields on the cliffs. The beach in low tide has access to caves and inlets and fascinating places. Theres a walk up a wood to see more scenary. A great day out for families and nature lovers. We found crabs fish and even... More

Visited this beach with the family. Car park was £5 all day or £2 after 2pm ( the car park doesn't close so if you come after 5pm there is no car park attendant ) Toilets are located near the car park just before you start walking up the steps. After you walk up the steps you face the most... More

Park at the car park, pay £5 for the day or £2 after 2pm then walk! Follow the signs, stop at the (immaculate) toilets first as there are no services in the beach. This walk does involve some incline but is manageable by small children, with help. The beach is quite sheltered so plenty of places to avoid wind. Advice... More

National Trust site with a small shop and cafe. The beach is a bit if a walk, up some steep steps and down similar onto the beach. The views are wonderful and the beach is perfect. The area is clean and safe with small waves and ample space. As it is in a cove, it is sheltered from the wind.... More

Without a doubt this is an attractive, sandy beach in a beautiful setting. However, I don't want to spend time on a beach where dogs are running around and their owners don't take responsibility for cleaning up after them. I really think the National Trust needs to rethink its "dog friendly" policy on this entire area.

My partner loves Wales and has brought my son and myself to various locations over the years from Aberdovey to Cardigan to Llandudno. Barafundle Bay though, has to be the most beautiful place I have visited so far. A very convenient carpark only a minute's walk away from the most beautiful beach. If you continue to walk, hugging the coastline... More
