Barafundle has been voted many times as one of the best beaches in Britain, and if you take the half-mile walk down the cliff path from the National Trust car park at Stackpole Quay you will see what makes it so popular. A secluded bay backed by sand dunes and pine trees with limestone cliffs at each end, Barafundle has golden sand and clear water with very few stones or rocks. This is an ideal family beach where the sand is perfect for building sandcastles, and the shoreline is shallow and safe for bathing.
You can join the Pembrokeshire Coast Path from here, and there are spectacular cliffs and a coastal fort on the walk northeast of Stackpole to Trewent Point.
Dogs are allowed but please be considerate to other beach users and remember you must always clean up after your dog.
Awards: Seaside Award (Rural) and Green Coast Award
