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...

Parked at the National Trust car park at Stackpole Quay and waked over the coastal path to the beach. It is a little bit of a walk so if you are a family that likes to take a lot of stuff to the beach then you should plan on how you are going to take it all for about a... More

As far as UK beaches go, this one is really lovely. Quite busy, but a nice spot and lovely walk along the cliffs to find it.

Visited many years ago and it was deserted. Lot busier now but still beautiful. Lovely beach. Great walk from Stackpole.

This beach is idyllic. Beautiful clean sand, and a safe place for children. There's a 1 mile (approx) walk from the car park so you tend to get people there who enjoy the natural surroundings and countryside and avoid noisy touristy places. There's a café by the car park with loos. I wouldn't recommend either. The service was appalling in... More

One of the best beaches I have seen in UK and the coastline is spectacular! Bit of a walk from the car park but can be easily done by healthy people. My 5 yr old managed it but the great grandparent ( over 80) didn't. There were places to sit though if you couldn't make it to the beach

Get here early to bag a car park space. A lovely walk over the hill and you come across one of the most beautiful yellow sandy beaches in a sheltered cove. Well worth the effort. We continued on on a the smaller circular walks from the map provided at the car park. Tea rooms at the end. We are definitely... More
