Having walked over the fields to what we had been told was the most beautiful beach in the UK we were expecting great things. It did not disappoint.....You look through an arch to the most stunning view below WOW! Five minute walk down steps onto soft golden sands.....no seaweed or stones, just the odd shell, yes I agree this is... More

I live not far from this beach. I wish it would be less publicised as it will end up spoilt and it is one of them places that take your breath away when you look at the beach and surroundings. But saying that I would love everybody to experience the beauty of this place. Please if you visit just pick... More

I've either walked it from Broadhaven or Stackpole which is a interesting but long walk (1 1/2hrs) or drove to stackpole car park and then a 10 minute walk. Fabulous beach, sand, views. Worth the effort.

Never thought there was such a beach in Wales. Saw all the reviews and being in the top 10 beaches in the world so decided to go to Stackpole and go for a walk. Wow! Amazing after a 1km walk from the cafe / toilets you see the beach, in the sun it's amazing! Don't just read the reviews go... More

Imagine a beach with no access within half a mile except by clifftop footpath, a beach with no facilities at all except sand and sea. A beach that is wide, golden, shallow, and a real sun trap. That is Barafundle. Stunning. Be aware that to access it takes a bit of a walk, then a gentle climb down quite a... More

We approached Barafundle from Stackpole Head. Must say from that side I was disappointed. However, nice on the beach and then the Eastern side it is lovely. In my view though, not quite as impressive as Broadsand South beach

Beautiful clear water, white sand, stunning views and peaceful. It's a bit of a walk and Decent shoes should be worn, not lease a you may have to walk through a field of cows! But worth it. You don't need to go to exotic far flung places Wales has them in spades, if like me you get the weather you... More

This is one of those beaches that at the right time of day you can have all to yourself. It's not accessible by car so there's a bit of a walk which keeps the hordes away. It can get a little busy on scorching days in summer holidays but at other times your's might be the only footprints on the... More

Having seen a picture of the beach, we took advantage of a day off and beautiful September weather to visit Barafundle Bay. Parked by Stackpole Walled Garden and walked to Stackpole Quay (excellent cream tea at the Boathouse) before a further 15 mins walk up steps, across a grassy headland and down even more steps. Tiring but well worth the... More
