"Sittin' on the dock of the bay"

Manorbier Bay Beach

Measuring approximately 165 metres in length, this beach is sandy with a pebble bank above the high tide mark. It faces south east into the Atlantic, sheltered by the limestone cliffs and over looked by the 12th century, Manorbier Castle. A spring-fed stream flows onto the middle of the beach, where it meets the sea. This beach can be quite popular with surfers due to a reef just offshore. The coastal waters and coastal belt is designated as the Pembrokeshire Marine Special Area of Conservation, confirming 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.
