Marloes Sands is situated on the Marloes Peninsula at the southern end of St Brides Bay, close to Dale and Musselwick Sands. The beach is a broad and curved, isolated stretch of sand with rocky outcrops along its length including the Three Chimneys; three vertical slabs of sandstone and mudstone. It is an 800m walk from the National Trust car park down to the beach which is rarely crowded and although the beach can disappear at high tide, at low tide there is plenty to explore and enjoy. The crystal clear water and rock pools make it an ideal beach for children and the stunning scenery, geology and fossils provide interest for the grown ups. Fossils can be seen in the layers of rock and can be collected from the loose scree on the beach. From the beach there are great views out to the islands of Skokholm and Gateholm. It is possible to surf here if you don’t mind the walk down to the beach.
Car parking is at the National Trust car park 800m from the beach and is free to National Trust Members.
Food: Nearest facilities can be found in Marloes village which has a pub, restaurant and café/bar. There is an ice cream van at the car park during the summer months.
Toilets are located at the National Trust car park.
Dogs are allowed on the beach 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.
