A golden, sandy beach backed by dunes, Barafundle is our favourite beach in Pembrokeshire. It has deservedly been voted one of the best beaches in Britain on many occasions and because it faces east, it’s usually sheltered from the prevailing wind.
Access to the beach is via a half mile walk along the Pembrokeshire Coast Path from the Stackpole Quay National Trust car park, and there are steps both up to the Coast Path and down to the beach.
There’s a tearoom near to the car park which serves drinks, snacks and ice creams.
If you fancy a longer walk, take the other path from the top end of the car park. This will take you across farmland, though Bosherston Lily Ponds, over to Broadhaven South beach and back along the Coast Path to Barafundle.
