Beaches of Pembrokeshire.

towards Freshwater West

Freshwater West.

This wild remote beach can be found along the B4319 and is a surfers paradise – plenty of camper vans here when the surf is up and the sun is out! The Welsh National Surfing Championships are often held here.

The huge beach has sand and rocky sections at the southern end, and is backed by huge sand dunes. Fragile and protected, these dunes are banned from camping or barbecues due to their scientific significance and vulnerability. The dunes area includes ferns, grasslands, reedbeds, purple moor grass and rush pastures.There are little bays at the north end .

Only very able swimmers should bathe here as the rip currents are strong, but it is fabulous for long walks and big skyscapes. There are some toilets and limited parking , but the only other facilities are provided by Cafe Mor – a unique culinary experience during spring and summer.

Used as the location for many epic films, including Robin Hood, Harry Potter and Their Finest, the seaweed-drying hut is an iconic feature too.

Known for fossils and the remains of old wrecks, this stunning beach has something to offer everyone and is well worth the drive or bus ride.
