You must see this special place!
Porth Sele is a favourite hidden treasure – a little known gem of a beach accessible from the coast path between St.Justinian’s and Whitesands. A gentle stroll from my regular holiday location at Trefeiddan, it is never busy although used by the lucky families staying at the Pencarnan and other nearby caravan and campsites. There are no facilities here and is unspoilt. At low tide you can walk around on the sand to Whitesands or there is a good footpath along the cliffs.
The views towards Carn Llidi are stunning and the peacefulness of this cove make it a wildlife haven – the narrow boggy path down to the shore is awash with butterflies and wild flowers and you may spot seals off the beach in the right conditions.
For children this beach is a paradise with sand, rock pools, a stream and caves. Small and uncrowded enough to be able to keep an eye on your offspring even in the height of the school holiday season, it is a relaxing spot for parents too.
