Marloes Sands is situated on the Marloes Peninsula at the southern end of St Brides Bay, close to Dale and Musselwick Sands. The beach is a broad and curved, isolated stretch of sand with rocky outcrops along its length including the Three Chimneys; three vertical slabs of sandstone and mudstone. It is an 800m walk from the National Trust car park down to the beach which is rarely crowded and although the beach can disappear at high tide, at low tide there is plenty to explore and enjoy. Fossils can be seen in the layers of rock and can be collected from the loose scree on the beach. From the beach there are great views out to the islands of Skokholm and Gateholm.

Dogs are allowed on the beach 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.
