Barafundle Bay

South Pembrokeshire, near Stackpole, Pembroke, SA71 5DQ

A small bay with a wide tranche of pristine sand backed by woods and a vast dune system.  Accessible only on foot from either Stackpole Quay over the cliffs (approx. ½ mile) or from Broad Haven South beach (approx. 1 ½ miles), but from whichever direction you approach the walk is well worth the effort and there are some stunning views of the Pembrokeshire coastline. It’s a steep walk down to the beach area but the stone steps are suitable for dogs and the beach is just perfect.

    What a lovely sunny day we had, beach was gorgeous and so were the tea rooms at Stackpole quay. We were told by the national trust guy to keep Mabel on the lead as they had already had a dog go over the cliff on the coastal path between Stackpole Quay and Barafundle bay. The dog had chased a seagull and his owner had climbed down to rescue him. The lifeguard was called when the man became stranded. So take care it’s such a beautiful place.

    Visited today, really lovely place. Walking from Stackpole Quay along the coastal path you can encounter livestock. The cows seem nonplussed by humans and furry friends.

    Only bins we spotted for poo were at the car park itself so prep for bag and carry.
