Details

At the north end of the beach there is a small, sandy area exposed at low tide. Lydstep beach is an attractive sandy crescent, which is covered at high tide, backed by a pebble bank, with rugged limestone cliffs at either end. The beach is popular for sea fishing, swimming and water sports. There is a zoned slipway for launching watercraft, the slipway can also be used as access to the beach for people who would have difficulty with the steps. The Pembrokeshire Coast Path runs alongside the beach and there are great views of Caldey Island along this section, framed between Giltar Point and Lydstep Head. Lydstep Head is owned by the National Trust and has well used footpaths skirting the peninsula. At the back of the beach is a large, privately owned caravan site where there is a cafe, shop and a take away. Nearby, caves known as Lydstep Caverns can be explored at low tide, accessible from a separate bay - you have to walk up over Lydstep Head to get to the Caverns from Lydstep Haven. Behind the beach is a large caravan park owned by Haven Holidays, Bourne Leisure Ltd.

Blue Flag beach. Dog restrictions apply at the eastern end of the beach between May and end of September.
