With over 420 kilometres of coastline, a holiday in Pembrokeshire is sure to be packed with coastal days out. Discover hidden coves, explore rocky outcrops, and relax on the many sandy beaches that dot the stunning county's shores. 

At Haven, we’re lucky enough to boast three fantastic holiday parks on the South Pembrokeshire Coast, all of which offer convenient access to Pembrokeshire’s seaside treasures. The quality of beaches in Pembrokeshire make it stand out amongst other areas of the UK. In fact, the county has been awarded more Blue Flags than any other in Wales thanks to their clean waters, and excellently maintained facilities. Indeed, all of the entries on this list of the best beaches in Pembrokeshire are Blue Flag status, so you can be sure of a safe and fun-filled day out.

Amroth Beach, Amroth

Amroth Beach, Amroth

Address: Amroth, Narberth SA67 8NN

Amroth Beach stretches the whole length of the pretty village of Amroth that it skirts. It has an extremely low tide which means that not only do excellent rockpools become exposed at the western end of the beach, but you can see a Petrified Forest, destroyed by rising sea levels 7000 years ago. The site has archaeological significance with the discovery of fossilised antlers, nuts, animal bones and Neolithic flints over the years. 

Just a 20-minute drive from our Tenby-based holiday parks, seven miles east of Tenby, the village parish of Amroth itself was an important coal mining area until the end of the 19th century. As a result, some mining remains and tramways are still visible along with the ruins of Amroth Castle, meaning its an excellent location for photographers. If you fancy bringing the pooch, bear in mind dog restrictions apply to the central and western end of the beach in the summer months.

Poppit Sands Beach, Cardigan

Address: St Dogmaels, Cardigan SA43 3LN

This large, sandy beach at the mouth of the Afon Teifi in Cardigan Bay marks the start or end of the famed 186-mile Pembrokeshire Coast Path National Trail. It’s an hour’s drive from our Haven sites in Tenby, but worth the journey, especially if you’re visiting the Cardigan area. 

The sandy expanses of Poppit Sands are best enjoyed when the tide is out as this gives you a chance to visit the rock pools or walk towards Cemaes Head which is fluttering with birdlife. There are stunning views across the bay (if you’re lucky you might even spot a dolphin), blue warm clear waters, and the wonderful Crwst café (open most days until late afternoon) where you can grab a coffee, sandwich or a delicious ice cream. The beach is popular with surfers all year round and the RNLI lifeboat volunteers are on hand in case anyone gets into trouble. Ample car parking is available with an overflow car park for use in the summer when it gets very busy.

Dale Beach, Dale

Dale Beach, Dale

Address: Church Cl, Marloes, Dale, Haverfordwest SA62 3RB

Dale Beach is the place to be when the sun is shining. But even on days when the weather isn’t playing ball, you’ll find this to be a scenic spot. Located on the far west coast of Pembrokeshire, on the edge of a charming little seaside village, inside the northern entrance to Milford Haven harbour, it's a beautiful place to take a stroll when the sun is going down. 

This picturesque beach also offers plenty in the way of activities. You can visit the charming local cafes, rent a canoe or paddle board, or even take a boat out to the islands of Skomer and Skokholm. Walking around Dale headland can also be an unforgettable experience. The coves are supplied with fresh water from several streams so it’s the perfect place to take your thirsty dog for a drink.

Saundersfoot Beach, Saundersfoot

Saundersfoot Beach, Saundersfoot

Address: Saundersfoot SA69 9AJ

This small cove is found off the quaint seaside town of Saundersfoot, a small but very popular resort which will provide all the facilities you may need. The beach itself is wide, flat, and sandy at low tide, though it still has plenty of space at high tide for you to set up camp for the day. There is a pretty harbour frequented by all manner of boats and stunning views from the nearby hill. It even hosts regular events such as The World Cawl Cooking Championships.

This is a wonderful beach for rock pooling, fishing from the shore line, or simply plotting up for a picnic. Dog restrictions apply to the whole beach except a small area just below Coppet Hall Beach between 1st May and 30th September every summer.

Coppet Hall, Saundersfoot

Coppet Hall, Saundersfoot

Address: Saundersfoot SA69 9AJ

North of Saundersfoot Beach you’ll find Coppet Hall, another beautiful stretch of golden sands. The distinctive feature of this beach is that it can be reached via the stunning coastal path. Should you come from the eastern direction or one of our Haven holiday parks in Tenby, this will take you through a mysterious tunnel from Wiseman’s Bridge which is a real adventure for the kids. 

The beach itself is pristine with clear waters. To keep it spotless, there are restrictions on dogs in certain areas so please check the signs before letting your pooch off his or her lead.

Newgale Beach, Newgale

Newgale Beach, Newgale

Address: Newgale, SA62 6BD

Newgale is a two-mile stretch of sandy coastline situated in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park with rugged coastal scenery and a coastal path that winds up and down the cliffs.

It is difficult to spot from the car as it is completely hidden from road level by hills of pebbles. However it is worth traversing this (especially in the summer months when local authorities lay down wooden walkways to aid your passage) as soft golden sands await closer to the seashore.

Newgale is a favourite amongst surfers for its consistent waves and there are a number of shops offering surfing lessons and wetsuit hire. The waters are very safe due to the gently shelving sands, meaning that the shallow waters are ideal for small children to paddle in. Parking is available with a small fee from Spring to October in the two main car parks and special mention must go to the cliff-top park on the Nolton Road which offers spectacular views and access to the coastal path.

Broad Haven North, Haverfordwest

Broad Haven North, Haverfordwest

Address: Enfield Rd, Haverfordwest SA62 3JW

With its sandy bay, rock pools, and clear waters, Broad Haven is the perfect beach for a family day out. At high tide the north beach is a long, narrow sandy and pebble strip, but at low tide a huge expanse of firm sand is revealed with plenty of room for all. The cliffs on both sides provide some shelter from the wind, meaning it’s also great spot for soaking up the rays. 

Broad Haven is more developed than many local beaches, so there are plenty of facilities and great dining options a short walk away including an award-winning burger shop. However, it's the lovely sand and clear water that make the north beach such an excellent place to visit and one of the best beaches in Pembrokeshire. There is car parking, but this can fill up quickly, so make sure you plan ahead.
