Barafundle has been voted many times as one of the best beaches in Britain and if you take the half mile walk down the cliff path from the National Trust car park at Stackpole Quay you will see what makes it so popular. A secluded bay backed by sand dunes and pine trees with limestone cliffs at each end, Barafundle has golden sand and clear water with very few stones or rocks. This is an ideal family beach where the sand is perfect for building sandcastles and the shoreline is shallow and safe for bathing. There are no facilities on the beach which means it is rarely crowded (except in high summer).
You can join the Pembrokeshire Coast Path from here and there are spectacular cliffs and a coastal fort on the walk north east of Stackpole to Trewent Point.
Car parking: Half mile walk over cliffs from Stackpole Quay car park, free to National Trust Members. Not suitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs due to large number of steps to get up and down from the cliff top.
Food: Tea room at Stackpole Quay
Toilets at Stackpole Quay
Lifeguards: Be aware: The beach offers sheltered bathing but there is no lifeguard cover. Lifebuoys are located on the beach.
Dogs are allowed but please be considerate to other beach users and remember you must always clean up after your dog.
Awards: Seaside Award (Rural) and Green Coast Award
