Freshwater East Beach

Beaches Seaside Award


Freshwater East beach is a lovely crescent shaped sandy beach with dunes and woodland at the rear which form a local nature reserve and Red Sandstone cliffs on either side. It is a rural beach on the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path and measures nearly 1km across.

The beach is great for families with good for swimming, walking, boating, fishing, building sand castles and relaxation. Not usually a surf beach but when there is surf then it is good surf.

Facilities include car park and toilets.

Freshwater East Beach has been awarded a regional Seaside Award.
