Stunning Beach, great rock pools, where you can pay your respects to 79 Royal Marines & Royal Navy Men who lost their lives there in the 2nd World War, very sad But They should never be forgotten. Great beach, with great sand dunes too also lovely bird walks just behind the car park, which is 20ft from the beach. Toilets... More

We run the The Golden Plover Holiday Home and Art Gallery in Warren which is minutes drive away by car or a good 40 minutes by foot. All our guests love this beach and we are lucky enough to have it on our doorstep.

Our preference over many years in Pembrokeshire has always been the rugged rockier beaches but discovered Freshwater about 5 years ago and I have to say it is stunning We visited the beach in October last year and the sunset was breathtaking. Stopped off with the kids on a drive up the coast in January and had a great time.... More

We literally went to a different beach every day on our holiday and this was the one we all wanted to revisit. A massive beach with a rocky outcrop in the middle. Stunning views and great rock pools to explore. The dogs loved running in the surf, and barking at surfers! Would have been great if the Dobby Beach Shell... More

Lovely beach. We were there in November so it was cold and we had a bracing walk, but I'm sure it is really lovely in the summer.

This beach is awesome! If you've got a dog or two to walk, you're going to love it. So much space for them to run around on and no restrictions. We went in the Autumn and their were no facilities, apart from the car park (which is free) and the public toilets. We have been in the summer and I... More

Beautiful beach with some decent surf. We lived it but you should be a strong swimmer before you think about swimming. Great for flying kites, surfing or a game of football.

One of those amazing beaches which can be busy, but also have loads of space. Great views, walks in the countryside nearby, rockpools, sand, swimming and just the most fabulous views. Car parking is limited, but plenty of space on the road, and there is a (small) toilet block there. Great for a relaxing family day
