Beautiful beach more sheltered and others, lovely sand for building sand castles you can see from above, that gently sloping into the sea. Great sand dunes for exploring, stunning walk to get there and a wooded area. It's too far to walk with buckets and spades from the car park, the cafe (National Trust good standard) is close to the... More

It's easy to understand why Barafundle Bay is regularly reviewed as one of the best beaches in the world by leading travel guides, It's simply glorious. The only access is via the Pembrokeshire coastal path (or air / sea) but it's well worth the small effort it takes to get there.

Well I made it there today Barafundle Beach and I must say I cannot for the life of me see what all the hype is about, yes it's very nice and picturesque and alike, but it doesn't have the wow factor I was expecting, but I am some what biased I live very close to the Gower and it's wonderful...

A significant walk to the beach from the nearest car park, but relatively easy even with three youngsters. The beach is wonderful. A good sand area with the tide in and a large area when the tide is out. Typical Pembroke shallow water as the tide comes in. Some sand dunes at the back for children to play if they... More

Stunningly beautiful award winning beach and surrounding area. We were out of season so most facilities are not open but you can carry your own provisions and enjoy it in any of the wonderful places along one the many routes.

Visited today, an overcast dry day in January. The beach was empty save a couple of others passing through walking that stretch of coast path. The beach was clean. The car park was empty, there was no charge. The toilets were open, but the cafe was closed.

What more can be said. Parked at Stackpole quay (although I didn't pay the £5 parking - National Trust members park free....and I'm not one of them). Im sure if it was peak time I may have got a ticket. Anyway..lovely walk across the cliffs and down to the beach. Beautiful. Lots of dogs off their leads mind you. Fresh... More
