Nolton Haven beach sits between Newgale Sands and Broad Haven in St Bride’s Bay. It is an uncrowded sandy beach popular for surfing, swimming and boating – there is a slipway on the beach. The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path borders the beach offering the opportunity to walk north to Solva and St Davids or south to Broad Haven. Fossils can be found in the boulders and rocks at the foot of the cliffs on either side of the beach. Above the beach the small chapel, over 150 years old, is believed to be the most westerly place of worship in the UK.

Car parking: There is a fairly large car park behind the beach provided by the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

Food: There is a pub, The Mariners Inn, next to the car park. It is only a short distance to the facilities of Broad Haven to the south and Solva and St Davids to the north.

Toilets There are toilets close to the beach.

Lifeguards: Bathing is popular but swimmers should take care as there can be strong currents off Nolton Haven. No lifeguards on duty.

Dogs are allowed.

Awards: Seaside Award
