South Pembrokeshire, Lydstep, SA70 7SE
Lydstep Haven, situated between Penally and Manorbier, is a beach you may not think of visiting because of the large static caravan park residing immediately behind it, which is slightly off putting, unless you’re walking this part of the coast path at which point the site’s facilities can come in very handy. The beach, which consists of rocks and pebbles with some sand at low tide, has lovely views of Caldey Island, but the main attraction here is the opportunity to explore the nearby labyrinth of coastal caves with Smuggler’s Cave being the daddy – its whale-like corridor runs the length of a football pitch. The caves are only accessible at low water so take a torch and check the tides times first!
Dog restrictions 1st May to 30th September – no dogs on eastern side (map).
