Freshwater east blue flag beach


A wide sheltered bay of golden sand backed by dunes, Freshwater East, is well known for its clear blue water and is a favourite with families. It rarely gets crowded, even in summer, and there is plenty of space for ball games at low tide. There are many fossils in the sand, and watersports such as kayaking, surfing, and windsurfing are popular.

Join the Pembrokeshire Coast Path in either direction for fabulous views and stunning coastal scenery. Walking east takes you to remote Swanlake Bay and on to Manorbier. Walking west takes you to Stackpole Quay, where there is a café, and from there, you can carry on to Barafundle Beach.

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
