Pembrokeshire's Beaches

Pembrokeshire is home to Britain's only truly coastal National Park and contains a wide variety of beaches. We have more Blue Flag and Green Coast beaches than any other county in the country. Some beaches are easy to reach and ideal for families, others are less accessible and offer peace and seclusion.

For more information about specific beaches, choose a beach from the map on our Enjoy Pembrokeshire website.

Whitesands near St Davids has been awarded a Blue Flag and Seaside Award.

Many of Pembrokeshire’s beaches have received top awards such as Blue Flag, Green Coast and Seaside Awards, which are symbols of environmental excellence, established to acknowledge, promote and protect the environment of rural beaches in Wales.

Pembrokeshire's coastline is nationally and internationally important for its wildlife. In spring the coastal grassland is a colourful blaze of wild flowers; there's a huge variety of bird life, from puffins to peregrine falcons; and if you're lucky you might see grey seals, porpoises or dolphins out at sea.

This beautiful but fragile environment is actively and sensitively managed by the National Park Authority, for your enjoyment and that of future generations.
