Information


Barafundle Bay beach is sheltered golden sands nestled between limestone headlands backed by dunes and woodland. The approach is part of the visit with woods and then an arch and steps down to the beach.

Owned by the National Trust this is a good family beach with safe swimming, good sand for traditional games and woodlands to explore.

Barafundle has been voted many times as one of the best beaches in Britain but regardless it should be on your visit list when visiting Pembrokeshire and you can make up your own mind.

Access only by foot but well worth the 10 minute walk along the cliffs from the car park at Stackpole Quay which is where you have toilets and cafe.

Barafundle Bay Beach has been awarded a regional Seaside Award.
