Swanlake Bay

Swanlake Bay

Swanlake Bay is accessible only from the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path; this beach is worth the trip.

It is a shingle beach but at low tide, it reveals golden sands and rock pools, backed by low cliffs.

Even at the height of summer, you could be one of only a handful of visitors.

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!
