Attraction Information

This secluded hard to reach beach is National Trust managed and sits on the most westerly peninsula of Wales between Fishguard and St David's Head; access is by a single track road from Mathry. 

The sand and pebble beach is in a small natural bay, and is stony at first but reveals a deep stretch of dark sand when the waters recede. There's good swimming in the Blue Flagged water but no lifeguard cover. See angling, kiting and surfing also go on here, but the rip currents here can be difficult so it's only for experienced surfers.

There is a submerged prehistoric forest just offshore and on calm days you can see trees under the water.

No immediate facilities or activities so don't skimp on the beach toys when you're packing!

Contact details are for the National Trust estate office nearby, not exactly there, so please do plan your journey with care.

Opening hours

No lifeguard cover at any time.


Limited roadside parking available, pay parking further out.
