Very popular with surfers and bodyboarders. The beach itself is stony when the tide is in, however an expanse of sand is revealed when the tide recedes so there’s plenty of room to run around and build sandcastles! The reef on the west side of the beach is one of the reasons why Manorbier is so good for surfing, but it’s also a great place for rock-pooling at low tide.
Currents can be quite strong here and be aware of a potentially nasty rip-current on the east side of the beach. Paddling is fine, but we wouldn’t recommend going out too far unless you’re a strong swimmer.
If you’re up for a bit of a walk, there’s a lovely sandy beach called Presipe Bay, hidden between Manorbier and Skrinkle and accessed via the Pembrokeshire Coast Path.
