South Pembrokeshire, near Stackpole, Pembroke, SA71 5LS
If you crave soft sand, sheltered swimming and the blissful absence of cafes and car parks, then Barafundle Bay is worth a special journey. The pristine patch of sand that makes the bay is set between cliffs to the north and south and backed by dunes and woodland. It’s accessible only on foot from either Stackpole Quay (approx. ½ mile) or from Broad Haven South beach (approx. 1 ½ miles). From whichever direction you approach the walk is well worth the effort and there are some fabulous 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.
Dog friendly all year!
