One of our favourite beaches in west Wales. You can either do the wooded walk down to the beach or the road both of which are a bit of a trek. The beach is constantly changing with the weather so always interesting to see what...More

Run by the National Trust, with free parking if you are a member. Unspoilt sandy beach approached by a fairly steep walk down from the car park, very quiet when we visited on a hot July day. Take your own food and drink as nothing...More

Visited this beach while in Wales camping, really nice big sandy beach, very clean, not the best surf, but great for young kids. Unfortunately the experience was marred by the fact the advertised electric car charging point (basically a socket on a fence post) did...More

Stunning beach for a lovely walk with dog. Park in NT carpark ( £2 Non members) and walk down steep lane. There is a cafe by carpark but only open weekends in winter. Note, there are no dog bins so please take your poop home.
