Visited this gem last week in half term and were blessed with a gorgeous sunny day. Barafundle is simply stunning - National Trust beaches tend to be extra nice and this one certainly is. We parked in Stackpole Quay (for free as we're members) and thoroughly enjoyed the walk over the cliff top, admiring the chalk and limestone cliffs and... More

To me Barafundle is the perfect beach. It's quiet (in March), flat, beautiful and very sheltered. You can reach the beach by a 15 minute walk up steps and along the cliff top (not close to the edge and no fear of falling) from the National Trust Stackpole Quay car park. We arrived after 2pm and only paid £2 for... More

This beach is located on National trust land. it is quite a trek over the headland from the car park but you are rewarded to the most breath taking view over the beach when you get there. The golden sand is perfect for sunbathing, making sandcastles or digging to Australia (which we all tried when we were young i'm sure... More

National Geographic magazine recently voted this stretch of coastline as joint second in THE WORLD for its seascape qualities. No Wonder! Owned by the National Trust this beach is an absolute gem and has neighbouring beaches of nearly equal quality. We stayed at nearby Wood Cottage, Stackpole and could easily walk to this and other nearby National Trust owned beaches... More

A secret place which you should not forget and you can always go back to. Best on a bright sunny day with a strong cold wind blowing. Great for family wandering and discovering things as well as going to the lily ponds nearby.

The beach at Barafundle was recommended by a colleague in work some time ago, so we decided to visit to see if it was as nice as their description. We were not disappointed at all, it was simply outstanding.. From the National Trust car park ( £5.00 daily rate ) you walk along the cliff tops, with its spectacular views,... More

We parked at Stackpole Quay (A national trust car park which was £5 for the day unless you're a member!). Pick up a free map from the car park attendant if you're planning to do some walking as it gives you a details on a really good 6 mile circular walk. My wife and I with our baby in his... More

Barafundle isn't the easiest beach to get to as you have a walk across the heath or a series of steps down to a wonderful beach by a sheltered cove. Great for walkers as well as beachcombers.

After a little walk along the cliff tops the beach crane into view. It is a lovely beach backed with sand dunes. The steps are quite steep but well worth it. We were the only ones on the beach at some points
