A small inlet on the north-western end of the Marloes peninsula, Martins Haven is a sheltered, rocky cove backed by a steep bank of shingle and pebbles. The beach is mostly pebble and rocks and is popular for diving and watersports.

Seals and sometimes dolphins and basking sharks may be spotted during the summer. The beach can very busy when boat trips are running, especially in school holidays.
