Close to Beautiful Pembrokeshire Beaches

Pelcomb Cross is a short distance from some of the most stunning beaches in Pembrokeshire.

Marloes Sands

Unspoilt Marloes Sands is just 3.4 Miles from Pelcomb Cross.

Managed by the National Trust, Marloes Sands is simply breathtaking, and is a great place to visit for fossil-hunters.  It is very remote and uncrowded, even in summer, making it a great place for coastal walkers, with pretty views of the beach as well as Skokholm Island and Gateholm Island.   It is about a 15 minute walk to the beach from Marloes Mare car park (charges apply).

Boat Trips can be booked in advance to the local nature reserve islands of Skokholm and Skomer to see the seals and huge quantities of nesting seabirds.

 

Newgale Beach

Carry on a little further down the A487 (for less than 10 minutes) and you won’t miss Newgale Beach.  The approach alone is breathtaking.

The huge expanse that is Newgale beach boasts stunning scenery and perfect surf, as well as three car parks (charges apply), two surf shops, a pub and a cafe.  Perfect for a family day out, or to find those absolutely essential Reef flipflops in that well stocked seafront surf shop (ask the webmaster!), this is one view you won’t want to miss.

 

Broadhaven

As the crow flies, Pelcomb Cross is very close to Broad Haven, but because this little resort in the middle of rural Pembrokeshire, it is a 14 minute drive.  Click here for directions.

Despite being accessed away from the main A-Road, Broad Haven is the most commercial of the local beaches – it is a perfect family beach resort, with a broad, sandy blue flag beach, rock pools and to the north end of the beach is the craggy Lions Head.  However, at either end of the beach, the rocks make for interesting walks for grown ups too (as seen in the photo taken by one of our campers!)  There is a a well stocked water sports shop near the sea front with surf board, paddleboard, wetsuit and kayak hire, as well as numerous cafes, ice cream shops and pretty little traditional souvenir shops.
