The colourful cliffs behind the beach contain a complex mixture of rocks formed around 410 million years ago and there are striking rock formations. Visitors come here to bathe, surf, fish and enjoy the tranquillity. Marloes Sands faces south west towards the offshore island of Skokholm. Skokholm Island is a nature reserve and home to an abundance of flora and fauna. Gateholm Island, at the north-west end of the beach, was inhabited from Neolithic to Medieval times and the remains of huts from the period can still be seen. The Pembrokeshire Coast Path runs along the cliff top and offers fine views in both directions. Access to the beach is via a sunken lane down a steep stream valley and may cause difficulty for people with limited mobility.
