This is a sheltered beach in a bay that is beautiful. It is a clean beach and dog friendly. No facilities but these can be found half a mile away. the beach was very quite even on a sunny Saurday You have to park the car in the National Trust car park at Stackpole then walk to the beach up... More

We spent a week in West Wales with our young family and as the weather was beautiful we decided to visit Barafundle. After a short walk from the car we arrived at one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever visited. The sand was golden and the sea was blue. It was also spotlessly clean which is exactly what...

What an amazing beach! On a hot, sunny September day you could have thought you were on a Greek island. OK, you have to walk 15 -20 minutes from nearest car park, but that is part of the attraction and why its not overrun with 100's of people. Also a great start point for some amazing coastal path walks around... More

This beach is on our 6 mile walk and some times we take a picnic and take in the veiw. Bit of a steep clime up the stepe off the beach.

This beach is absolutely beautiful. It's a bit of a walk from the car park (about 15 mins) but it's totally worth it as it isn't packed and touristy. The sea is clear and you could easily mistake it for a beach abroad on a hot sunny day. Just naturally beautiful, unspoilt and rugged. This has got to be in... More

This bay is beautiful and unspoilt. No cafes with the smell of chips - just a glorious beach with silky golden sands. Turquoise blue sea. Well worth the walk from the car park. No litter left behind. And not crowded. Tranquil. The best beach in Wales.

A local in the hotel swimming pool insisted we should include this on our itinerary, a few days spent walking around Pembrokeshire. The circular walk from Stackpole Quay (with excellent cream tea to end) via the Lily ponds was magnificent.

Having read about this in the paper we thought we must visit. Parked at Stackpole Quay and walked to the beach which is fabulous, then followed the map given to us at the car park past the lake and into Stackpole where we stopped at the pub for a drink and pub lunch and then walked back to the car...

This in my opinion is the most beautiful beach in Wales Some even say in Europe which I would tend to agree with There is no access by car you have to park close by and walk which is why i think it remains so clean Take your own refreshment and tidy up afterward Beautiful sea sand and scenery

This was the only day of our holiday that it hadn't rained and after reading the reviews we thought we should pay it a visit. We weren't disappointed though it was interesting carrying towels, body boards etc from the car. The only thing we would say is a few more signs and directions and an approximation of how far away...
