Freshwater East Beach

Formerly used by smugglers, Freshwater East is now popular with walkers, bathers and fishermen.

The lovely, quiet sandy beach is about half a mile long, and features a small stream suitable for youngsters to play in, shallow sea water, a boat slipway and caves. The east-facing beach is sheltered from the prevailing south-westerly winds.

Behind are sand dunes through which the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path climbs onto cliffs with magnificent views.

There is ample (pay and display) parking, toilets and a public phone box. Car parking for disabled people is provided close to the beach, with a level pathway onto the sand. Freshwater East beach is popular for canoe races and surfing.
