This is a beautifully kept beach by the national trust! A jewel in their crown!! Get their earlier rather than later because parking fills up quickly! The sea is a gorgeous colour and their are plenty of rocks to jump off and caves to explore at low tide of you don't mind getting a bit wet! Only a 5 min... More

Really lovely beach, full of families having a classic seaside beach day in a stunning spot. As far as I could tell everyone's kids were either called Noah, Reuben, Jago or Milo probably due to the fact it's a National Trust

A little bit of a trek up and down from Stackpole quey to get there, but once there it is stunning. Not to over crowded due to the trek.

This is a beautiful beach - dog friendly. We went on a day when it rained so it's beauty was not fully expeienced. Car park £5 all day and you can use it in other national trust car parks close by. Access to beach is after a walk from car park....steep steps but so worth it for view. Toilets on... More

Well worth a visit. A fair walk to get too but worth the effort. Fantastic beach to spend the day. Nothing about so you have to take it all with you. Cheap day out.

I visited Barafundle Bay beach with my 10 and 8 year old children. I read about this beach in a Wales guide and headed there on our first decent sunny day. We travelled 90 miles by car from The Valleys and boy was it worth it. We parked at the Stackpole National Trust car park. We arrived at 11.30am and... More

Well worth a visit. Car park £5. A fair walk to the beach but a beautiful one with breathtaking views. Sandy beach, great for kayaking, caves etc. Can kayak from Stackpole quay to Barafundle. There's a cafe and loos near car park but nothing near beach.

Beautiful quiet beach. Worth the walk as its not accessible by vehicle. Stop off at the boat house for a coffee.

First of all, if you're not a National Trust member you'll need £5 for the car park. This is a small price to pay for the wonderful day out ahead. Next check the tide times: there's not a lot of beach to visit when the tide is in, and sometimes the water comes right up to the dunes. There are... More
