This beach is sandy with a pebble bank above the high tide mark. At high tide the beach is very small, due to cliff formation, however at low tide it becomes much larger and wider. The rural beach faces south west out into the Atlantic Ocean and is backed by sandstone cliffs. At low tide the waters are shallow and a distance from the shore front. The bay and coastal waters form part of the Pembrokeshire Marine Special Area of Conservation and is also designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest, which confirms the high conservation status of the Area. The bathing water also lies within Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.
In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use. Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
