Broadhaven South. Great for tots and teens

Despite the name being somewhat of a misnomer (it's not as wide as Broad Haven North but is quite a deep beach) Broadhaven South is a classic Pembrokeshire beach, with golden sands stretching far back towards Bosherston Lilyponds.
It has great surf as well as a sheltered lagoon, making it great for families with a mix of big and little ones.

What it's like

A beautiful pale gold sandy beach surrounded by National Trust land. A long series of steps leads down from the car park at the south west side of the beach. The path around Bosherston Lilyponds joins the beach at the north.
Two island outcrops dominate the beach. Church Rock (so named because from certain angles it does indeed look like a church with a spire at one end) is a short distance out to sea. Star Rock at the west end of the beach can be climbed when the tide is lower.
There’s a long lagoon down the east side of the beach, created by the outflow from the Lilyponds.

What to do when you're there

Other things you should know about it

There really are two S’s in Bosherston. Many visitors accidentally pronounce it as “Bosher-ton”, without the second S. Of course, if you really want to sound like you know what you’re doing, just call it “Bosh”…!

The car parks in Bosh village and at Stackpole Court used to be free, which meant that you could enjoy a leisurely walk around the beautiful lilyponds and down to the beach. Unfortunately the National Trust have in recent years started charging for both of these too.

How to get there

From Warren, head back to Pembroke along the B4319 and take the turning right signposted to Bosherston.
Pass through the village, and take a left turn to Broadhaven (marked by a brown National Trust sign).
Follow the lane to the National Trust (paid) car park at the very end.

West Angle bay. A lovely toddler-friendly beach

West Angle bay takes a while to get to, located as it is beyond Angle out on the western tip of the southern peninsular. But with its sheltered location and multiple coves, it’s a fantastic beach for toddlers and smaller kids. It’s also great for more adventurous teenagers. In fact, it’s the beach Hannah’s grandparents took her to the most often up until the age of about five. It was a regular feature of her bike expeditions with friends when she was older. Read More …
