Broad Haven is one of the most popular beaches in Pembrokeshire, offering picturesque views and fun for all the family.
Situated on the west coast of Pembrokeshire some seven miles south of Newgale, the village backs onto the beach and is separated by a quay wall with seating and walking areas. The award-winning Pembrokeshire beach offers a lovely day out for families looking to make the most of the summer sunshine.
Want to find out more about the sweeping golden sands of Broad Haven Beach? We’ve put together a handy visitors guide, with all you need to know about the local area…
Broad Haven is home to two pubs and a restaurant but it is the stunning beach that attracts most people to this little village. This long stretch of sand and pebble is popular with all sorts of visitors – from bathers making the most of the safe waters to horse riders who are often seen galloping along the shore. The beach is also one of Pembrokeshire’s most popular family-friendly beaches.
The surrounding sea cliffs provide some sheltered areas, which are great for family picnics in the summer months. Some of the cliff features near Broad Haven have great names – Haroldston Chins, Settling Nose and Sleek Stone to name just a few.
If you’re looking for soft sand to spend the day bathing on, we’d recommend heading over to Broad Haven South Beach, a gorgeous beach in West Wales. Accessed from the northern end of the bay (by the lily ponds), this lovely corner of the beach is ideal for bathers. The currents here are quite strong, so it’s often a little quieter here as it’s unsafe for watersports. There is a small stream from the lily ponds nearby which is perfect for cooling off in, though!
The spacious beach affords great views of St Brides Bay. Visitors can take a walk along the pretty sea cliffs, which are actually part of the picturesque Pembrokeshire Coastal Path.
In the village, there is also a large pond that you can walk around which goes by the name of Slash Pond.
For tasty pub grub and a refreshing drink, head on over to The Galleon Inn in the village. This friendly, family-run pub offers a spacious beer garden and beachfront seating. A great place for families, and even those bringing their well-behaved pups along.
Along the seafront, you’ll also find The Ocean Cafe Bar and Restaurant, which serves up ice cream and a tasty assortment of lunches.
Dog restrictions 1st May to 30th September, please see signs at the beach for more info.
There are pay and display car parks at Milmoor Way and off Marine Road.
