Broad Haven South beach

Broad Haven South beach

A wide sandy bay backed by dunes that lead from The National Trust owned Bosherston Lakes. This beach has masses of soft sand at low tide ensuring enough space for everyone.

Access from the car park above the beach at its southern end is not suitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs due to the number of steep steps down the cliff. The National Trust has a guide of recommended routes to allow access for accompanied tramper, assisted wheelchairs and pushchairs. Download a copy here.

Please be aware that the sea of Broad Haven South has strong currents.

Explore the boulders and ‘island’ on the west side to discover caves and springs gushing out of the cliffs. The convoluted low cliffs on the east side have a few small caves at low tide.

The clean stream emptying out of the lily ponds runs along this side and is perfect for small children to play in. There’s also a good rock for jumping off at high tide.

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.

What's at Broad Haven South beach?


There’s ample parking above the beach in the National Trust car park or in Bosherston village by the church.  It’s a 1 mile walk to the beach from here but it does take you through the picturesque lily ponds. Well worth it!
