A quick guide to Celtic Haven’s favourite Pembrokeshire beaches

8th April 2013

We really are spoiled for choice when it comes to beautiful Pembrokeshire beaches! We’re home to Britain’s only truly coastal National Park and  we boast a wide variety of stunning sandy beaches, from Tenby and Saundersfoot in the South East of the county right round to Poppit Sands in the North West.

We’re lucky to have more Blue Flag and Green Coast beaches than any other county in the country! Depending on what you’re after, you’ll find many easily accessible beaches which are ideal for families as well as quaint coves which offer a haven of peace and seclusion.

Here are just a few of our favourite local beaches, some of which are right on the doorstep of Celtic Haven!

tenbysouthSouth Beach, Tenby

Stretching right across from the town of Tenby to Giltar Point, Tenby’s South Beach offers 2 kilometres of soft sand, a cafe and restaurant and spectacular views of Caldey Island.

Broadhaven SouthBroadhaven4

The stream running down from Bosherston Lily Ponds makes a great play pool so Broadhaven is a popular choice with families. The optional walk through the lily ponds is pretty special too, especially when the lilies are out in the summer!

Barafundle3Barafundle Bay

Award-winning Barafundle Bay is part of the National Trust’s Stackpole Estate and can be reached over the cliff-tops from the car park at Stackpole Quay.

The stunning and peaceful surroundings combined with the charming original walls of the Stackpole Estate make Barafundle a must visit if you’re staying nearby.

Manorbier Beach and CastleManorbier Beach

Only a couple of minutes down the road from us at Celtic Haven, Manorbier Castle offers a stunning backdrop for one of our favourite local beaches. A popular beach with surfers, the stream and stepping stones also makes a great playground for children.

LydstepLydstep Beach

At the foot of Celtic Haven you’ll find the lovely shingle beach at Lydstep – fantastic if you’re after thrills and spills on the water, swimming, sea angling and stunning views of Caldey Island.

Freshwater Westshellhouse1

A popular beach with surfers, windsurfers, kitesurfers and walkers, the gorgeous sweeping sands of Freshwater West found themselves on the big screen in 2009 when Harry Potter’s ‘shell house’ was constructed and filmed here!

AbereiddyAbereiddi/Blue Lagoon

Home to the Red Bull World Cliff Diving championships, Abereiddi boasts spectacular cliff-top scenery and a striking ‘Blue Lagoon’ which was once a slate quarry. Abereiddi’s history makes it a perfect spot for snorkelling, diving, kayaking and walking.
