Awards for Pembrokeshire’s beaches

Visit Pembrokeshire

Pembrokeshire is celebrating success in the 2021 Wales Coast Awards.

A total of 18 beaches have been recognised winning Blue Flag or Green Coast awards.

Eleven beaches will be flying the iconic Blue Flag, a world-renowned eco-label owned by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE).  For more than three decades, Blue Flag has had a transformational impact on water quality, safety and environmental management, it has also inspired environmental awareness through educational activities and promotion of social responsibility.

No flags were flown last year in Wales due to COVID19 restrictions, and this year is a real cause for celebration as Pembrokeshire’s beaches continue to maintain a high standard of water quality, cleanliness and environmental practices during very challenging circumstances.

The following beaches will be proud to fly their Blue Flags in 2021: Amroth, Newgale, Saundersfoot, Dale, Whitesands, Coppet Hall, Tenby North, Tenby South, Tenby Castle, Poppit Sands, and Broad Haven.


Green Coast Awards celebrate ‘hidden gems’ along the coastline and recognise excellent water quality and unspoiled environment.

No fewer than 7 of the 13 Welsh Green Coast winners are in Pembrokeshire. They are:

Abereiddy, Freshwater East, Penally, Caerfai, Druidston, West Angle Bay and Manorbier.
