Beaches near St Davids


A small bay near St Davids, stunning, rocky and red sandstone beach with sand at low tide. The cove is southfacing and quite sheltered with relatively few visitors. Sandstone was quarried here for St Davids Cathedral. Good for Bass fishing. A short walk from Caerfai or a good stop on a longer walk to Solva (get the bus back).


Caerfai is popular for bathers, although do check the tide time as at high tide the beach is completely covered leaving only rocks and boulders. Some lovely rockpools to look in. A fun family beach. The path is quite steep, do take care. The unusual purple sandstone along the cliffs was used to build St Davids Cathedral. Limited parking is available at the top of the path to the beach or within the large caravan park.


A small harbour popular with divers and kayakers with lots of climbing routes on the surrounding cliffs. A popular place from which to start a walk on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. Either East towards Caerfai, back across some inland paths or West round to St Justinian's and back along the road. There is a car park, toilets and an ice-cream shed in the summer. Good for crabbing on the high tide. You just need some string, a weight and a bot of bacon.


Named after a famous pirate you can look for doubloons in the rock pools or whilst snorkelling in the crystal clear waters although bathers need to beware as the current can be strong. A walk from Porthclais well worth it with a picnic for on the beach. Often lots of flotsam and jetsom to look through.

St Justinian's

Not much of a beach but important if you want to go out in a boat or perhaps be rescued. The RNLI station is here and many of the local popular boat trips use St Justinian's as a departure point.


Between St. Justinian and Whitesands a good place to stop on a coast path walk. Good for swimming. Often less busy than Whitesands. well worth the walk.

Porthmawr (Whitesands)

One of the best beaches in the world. I have spent many an hour here (lucky me). Good for surfers. Lifeguards in the summer to help keep you safe. Dog ban from April - September so child friendly. Gets very crowded in August.


A sandy and secluded beach close to Whitesands. Can be quieter than Whitesands itself. No dog ban. Walk along the coastal path from the car park at Whitesands.
