South Wales has some of the most stunning beaches around - some with Blue Flags! Probably more than anywhere else in the UK, most with car parking nearby.
Lydstep Beach Hoilday Village (just up the road from Kiln Park) has it's own beach. There is even a Smugglers Cave (not in use) which can be explored, even at high tide. The beach is a Blue Flag sandy/pebbly beach, there are cliffs at one end of the beach and a slipway in the centre to cater for boat launches.
The water quality is excellent and the beach offers sailing, swimming, sub aqua, angling, canoeing, windsurfing, water skiing and power boating.
The South Beach is a glorious two miles of golden sand, stretching all the way from St Catherine's Island to Giltar Point. There are sand dunes at the rear of the beach - leading to the oldest established golf course in Wales.
About halfway up the beach is a small path leading directly to Kiln Park Holiday Park.
North Beach comprises a small golden stretch of sandy beach, dotted with occasional rock pools and Goskar Rock. With quick access to Tenby (by the path) this makes a great day out for the family.
This beach offers great views and facilities over Carmarthen Bay, the beach is accessed via the steps from North Cliff.
Overlooked by medieval Manorbier Castle and the 12th Century church of St James.
This beach is great for rockpooling, with water quality "excellent". This beach makes for good swimming, canoeing and angling.
There is a cafe, car park and disabled toilets.
Barafundle Bay - voted best beach in Great Britain as well as one of the top 10 beaches in the world.
This really is a stunning beach and is well worth the walk from the car park. With "excellent" water quality plus a Seaside Beach Award, this beach has no facilities but please don't let that put you off!
Saundersfoot beach is a large and very popular beach with plenty of facilities, overlooked by Saundersfoot itself, and is accessed by a ramp next to a beach shop and a large car park.
There are many shops in Sandersfoot plus pubs, cafes and ice-cream kiosks to make a great day out - all located within walking distance.
Amroth Beach is close to a charming little village - facilities include a large free car park, a beach attendant during the summer, some pubs offering food and drinks, a chip shop, and even an ice cream kiosk and cafe.
Castle Beach, Tenby, has a sandy beach and lies in the small cove between Castle Hill and the East Cliff, very close to Tenby itself. At low tide it is sometimes possible to walk out to St. Catherine's Island (as seen in the photo above) and so explore the many rock pools around the cliffs.
