Porthmelgan beach is a remote beach on St David’s Head overlooking Ramsay island. At high tide the beach is pebbles but sand becomes visible as the tide goes out. The beach is sheltered by rocky cliffs and a large stream cuts across the beach.
Porthmelgan beach is a popular choice rather than the busier Whitesands Bay beach with access being a short 10 minute walk along the coast path from Whitesands Bay.
Nearest facilities are at Whitesands Bay where you have parking, toilets and cafe.
We have no current information on dog restrictions for Porthmelgan Beach.
