Beach, free entry


The delightfully named Poppit Sands is as charming a beach as its name suggests. With its clean shallow sand and extensive dunes it is the ideal location to enjoy the Pembrokeshire coast.

Popular with walkers the Pembrokeshire Coast path begins here with its spectacular coastal scenery and wealth of fascinating landscape and wildlife.

The challenging waves make sailing and surfing a key feature of the beach and although there can be strong currents, bathing between the lifeguards' flags is safe.

The unspoilt coastline is a haven for exciting sea life such as seals and porpoise and for the fortunate there is always the chance of spotting a bottlenose dolphin gliding through the waves.

Blue Flag & Seaside Award beach. Dog restrictions apply to the western end of the beach May to end September. Lifeguard service provided 10:00 - 18:00 15 June to 1 September 2019.
