Great views ...
Jul 2021
A lovely beach where the shallow stretches out at long way. We walked the west-bound path up and round the headland to the next bay, interesting named swan lake.

The view at the top of the climb is absolutely majestic and worth the exhausting climb.

A great beach, fresh water stream for lids to dam and canal. Skim boards go well and body boards .Sandy with some flat stones. Can get busy but does not feel crowded. Fantastic castle and church.

Sheltered bay with brilliant rock pools.
Jul 2021
A shingle beach with some sand to the eastern end. Car parking approx 100m back. £1 an hour. Bay dominated by the impressive castle and Norman church. Good rock pools. Probably a good surfing beach.

Manorbier beach
Jun 2021 • Family
Fab beach. I think the best one around here. It has toilets, cafe a short walk in the village with great food and coffee.

Toilets in the car park.
Parking is pay machine which if you download the app called pay by phone fist it will make your day 100 times easier as very simple to use with Apple Pay.

4g reception on the beach with EE.
Car park is only 2-3 min walk from the beach, there is also a handy fresh water stream on the beach for washing down ISUP etc.

Beach has sand and stones so you can take your pic.
Shade is a no so you much bring your own.

Great for surfing when rough and paddle boarding when calm.

No life guards.

Great secluded bay
Jul 2021 • Friends
Lovely beach, not too busy and water crystal clear. Allow tide it can be quite a walk to reach the water but all in all a good place to visit, if just lacking a few basic amenities closer by.

Nice bay, not good for a day's sunbathing
Jul 2021 • Couples
Small bay with large tidal range with undercurrents further out. Worth a visit but there are better for a day's sunbathing.

Visited for about 1.5 hours about Midday and tide came in about 100yds in an hour to full tide.

Beware of a lot of small jellyfish which come in with every tide to feed on tide out.

More of a shingle beach than sand. Small amount of pebbly sand between rocks and small sand dunes beyond. A stream runs out in this bay, to the right is all sharp rocks right out.

When you walk out you are dodging rocks and fighting shingle

Small amount of sand available to go out and bathe. Some amount of floating seaweed and debris generally can see bottom.

This is a beautiful beach with a stream running across it. The beach is also dog friendly which is great with a lot of parking nearby.

A lovely sheltered beach with fantastic cafe’s close by, but don’t expect huge golden sands.
Jun 2021 • Family
We have spent 2 weeks staying in Manorbier in late July and visited the beach regularly. It was clean every time and not too busy, with plenty of parking. There are great food options just 5 mins from the beach in Manorbier (Manorbier Castle Cafe, Beach Break Cafe or Castle Inn - would recommend you book a table at busy times for the latter two). This isn’t a huge sandy beach but what it lacks in sand is made up for in its sheltered bay and amenities close by. There is more sand at low tide. Dog friendly and public toilets in the car park. Lovely walks in either direction along the cliffs.
