Enjoy Pembrokeshire

Beaches

Pembrokeshire is home to Britain's only truly coastal National Park and contains a wide variety of beaches. We have more Blue Flag and Green Coast beaches than any other county in the country. Some beaches are easy to reach and ideal for families, others are less accessible and offer peace and seclusion.

Most provide good swimming and many lend themselves to plenty of other activities too, such as water sports, beach games, rockpooling or just taking it easy in the sun. This website will highlight many of these stunning locations and give details on how to get there, what you can do, nearby facilities, some important messages on safety and helping to keep the beaches as perfect as you found them.

RNLI message

  • Wherever possible, always swim at a lifeguarded beach.
  • Always read and obey the safety signs, usually found at the entrance to the beach. These will help you avoid potential hazards on the beach and identify the safest areas for swimming.
  • When on a lifeguarded beach, find the red and yellow flags and always swim or bodyboard between them - this area is patrolled by lifeguards.
  • Never swim alone. If you get in trouble, stick your hand in the air and shout for help.
  • If you see someone in difficulty, never attempt a rescue. Tell a lifeguard or, if you can't see a lifeguard, call 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
