Morfa Bychan Beach

Morfa Bychan beach near Pendine is a sandy beach with some pebbles, safe bathing and some rock pools to explore. The beach is surrounded by limestone cliffs and caves and looks out over Carmarthen Bay towards Tenby and Gower.

There is some parking at the beach but the access road can be bad to access the beach so will need to walk. Options to walk are from Pendine beach at low tide, along with the coast path although this is a hilly walk.

No facilities available at the beach but some available at nearby Pendine village.
