Cwm yr Eglwys beach

A sandy cove, with a stream running through the middle, providing plenty of rock pools for intrepid explorers. Popular with boat users as the village has a boat club.

Above the beach is the end wall of a chapel. The rest was washed away in the enormous storm of 1859 that created all of Pembrokeshire’s pebble banks. There’s a 10ft high wall surrounding the top of the beach, making it very sheltered.

To get down to the beach, you follow the slipway. Clamber over rocks at the west end of the beach to find a secret low tide beach. There’s also a pebbly cove on the east side.

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!
