DAYS OUT

Marloes Sands, Pembrokeshire




by Webmaster, 24th February 2020

WHAT CAN I SEE? We’re looking north-west over the rocky outcrops that help to make this one-mile-long sandy beach so appealing. The cliffs add to its dramatic nature and, in the distance, is Gateholm – a tidal island that was once the subject of Channel 4’s archaeological show Time Team. More than 130 roundhouses have been found there, along with numerous Roman artefacts.

HOW CAN I GET THERE? The village of Marloes lies 12 miles south-west of Haverfordwest along the B4327. From here it’s a further mile to the National Trust car park, followed by a half-mile walk down to the beach. Beware that at high tide the beach can disappear altogether, so make sure you check tide times (www.tidetimes.org.uk).

WHAT FACILITIES ARE THERE? The nearest cafe is Runwayskiln (tel: 01646 636545; find on Facebook), close to the car park. Marloes village has The Lobster Pot (tel: 01646 636233; thelobsterpotmarloes.co.uk) offering food and B&B, while Camille’s (tel: 07966 350462; find on Facebook) serves pizza and pasta. Dogs are allowed on the beach, though bins are not provided.

WHAT’S NEARBY? The beautiful wildlife magnets of Skomer and Skokholm islands are both accessed from Martin’s Haven, just a couple of miles away.
