Caerfai Bay Beach

Wales Coast Awards - Green Coast Award 2024

Caerfai, the nearest beach to historic St Davids, has long been popular for bathing with residents and visitors alike. At high tide it consists entirely of rocks and boulders, but sand is revealed as the tide goes out. The sheltered bay is surrounded by impressive but unstable sandstone cliffs with plenty of evidence of rock falls. There are several caves to explore, as well as interesting rock pools.

There is a car park above the beach and access from here to the beach is via a steep path which may cause difficulty for people with limited mobility. The beach is part of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path with stunning, unspoilt coastal scenery in both directions. Much of the coastline in this area is owned by the National Trust.

Small shop near the car park. All other facilities including toilets, pubs, cafes and restaurants can be found in St David's, which is less than a mile inland.

Dogs are allowed.
