Lydstep Haven Beach is located near Tenby on the Pembrokeshire coast. The beach offers caves and dramatic views of Caldey Island and also benefits from a free National Trust car park.
Lydstep Haven beach is about ½ mile long and dominated by the private Lydstep Beach Holiday Village behind the beach that offers a range of paying facilities, including amusement arcades and a heated indoor swimming pool. (Please note that the main building facing the beach is for the residence of the Holiday Village).
The free National Trust car park is located at Lydstep Headland, which can be reached by turning off the A4139 at Lydstep village onto a byway signposted as a no-through road. After approximately 300 yards along this very bumpy track, a turning on the right leads to the National Trust car park at the top of the hill. This park also gives you access to the Pembrokeshire coastal path leading to Lydstep Caverns Beach, Skrinkle Haven Beach, Presipe Bay Beach and Manobier Beach and many more thereafter, depending on how far you would like to walk.
The shore is of sand and pebbles, backed with a sea-defence wall of rocks and flanked by limestone cliffs. These shelter the bay, and swimming is generally safe, but there are no lifeguards here. Caves on the north side can be explored at low tide.
Access to the shore is down a steep slipway or steps. Facilities include toilets, drinking water and a small shop. In summer, the northern half of the beach has a designated swimming zone, and dog restrictions apply on this section of the beach from 1st May to 30th September. The beach looks out towards Sandtop Bay on Caldey Island.
