Beaches of Pembrokeshire : Penycwm.

Jim Saul’s favourite. I used to write about gardens in Pembrokeshire, so I was a bit surprised to be asked to give a few words about my favourite Pembrokeshire beach for the Year of the Sea features! Hard to choose, but this is now my closest beach and the one I go down to very […]

Broad Haven , Pembrokeshire

Beaches of Pembrokeshire: Broad Haven.

Ideal family beach near Haverfordwest. Broad Haven is a great beach for family fun – at low tide there is plenty of sand, but it can get crowded at high tide when only a little sand and the pebble bank is left. You can walk to The Settlands at low tide or along the cliffs  […]

Sandy Haven, south Pembrokeshire

Year of the Sea: Sandy Haven.

Beach near Milford Haven. What’s it like? An inlet looking out over the Milford Haven waterway, Sandy Haven is not one of Pembrokeshire’s best known beaches. I must admit I had never visited in over 26 years of exploring the county and it was a pleasant surprise. Locals told me that on a hot summer’s […]

Beaches of Pembrokeshire: Newgale.

Glorious golden sands. The huge pebble bank which lines the nearly three miles of sand was created in a great storm of 1859 and it has been breached several times since – there is concern now as to how much longer it can be rebuilt after each winter’s battering. There are extra bays , rock […]

Newquay, Pembrokeshire

Beaches of Pembrokeshire.

New Quay. Only usually accessible at weekends and in the evenings, this narrow cove is in part of the Castlemartin Range and therefore closed during firing. It is remote and magical so well worth the short  ten minute walk from St. Govan’s Head or Broadhaven South, where there is parking. There are no facilities and […]
