Caerfai bay

A small rocky cove at high tide, sandwiched between towering cliffs 1 mile south of St Davids. The rocks around Caerfai are multi coloured with a mixture of grey, green and vivid pink.

At low tide a sandy beach is revealed with plenty of rock pools to explore. Beware as there are strong currents in the sea off Caerfai.

Access to the beach is down a steep winding path. 

If you’re planning to visit, check out the tide times to make sure you’ve plenty of beach to play on and that you don’t get cut off by the incoming tide!
