Caerfai Bay beach (Pembrokeshire)

Caerfai Bay beach is a sandy beach with a high water pebble bank. At high tide you don’t get much beach but as the tide goes out the beach becomes much larger and wider and the waters are shallow.

The beach faces south west into the Atlantic Ocean and is backed by purple sandstone cliffs, this sandstone was quarried for the construction of St.Davids Cathedral.

The beach has a car park and a number of campsites.

Caerfai Bay beach has been awarded a regional Seaside Award.
