Description

Saundersfoot Beach is situated in front of the Saundersfoot village and with its small Harbour, and sandy beach is very popular. Gently sloping sands make it for safe swimming, and the shops and cafes provide all facilities along the beachfront, providing a great family beach.

A short walk to the north, along the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, is the hamlet of Wisemans Bridge which is linked to Saundersfoot by a cliff tunnel. Or at low tide you can walk all the way to Amroth Beach, crossing Coppet Beach and Wisemans Bridge beach. Always check our tide timetable at the bottom of our home page before setting out.

Saundersfoot beach stretching for half a mile northwards from the Harbour to Coppet Hall point. The beach usually attains the Blue Flag Award and consists of fine sand with a few outcrops of rock. The beach looks out across Carmarthen Bay to Rhossili Down and Worm’s Head on the Gower Peninsula.

It can get quite active, especially around high tide. Access to the shore is a slipway with a steep gradient. A Pay and Display car park is located at the Harbour overlooking the beach and another Pay and Display car park a short distance away by the Regency Hall. Short term free parking can be found on Frances Lane, which runs along the northern perimeter of the village.

Saundersfoot has excellent facilities, including pubs, cafes, beach shops and take-aways. In summer, fishing trips operate from the Harbour. Toilets are located at the back of the Harbour, and drinking water is available from taps along the southern harbour wall. Lifeguards patrol from late June until early September (10 am - 6 pm).

The Harbour was built initially to export anthracite from local pits, which was served by a narrow (4’ 0”) gauge railway with two branches. One branch ran along The Strand and through a 70-yard tunnel to Coppet Hall, thence through further tunnels of 20 and 110 yards and along the foot of the cliffs to Wisemans Bridge and Stepaside. This route is now a foot and cycle path.

The other branch ran directly inland to Reynalton passing under Saundersfoot station in a ¼ mile-long tunnel. Following this route (via Brookland Place, the Incline, Fan Road) is the best way to reach Saundersfoot’s rural rail station, which is about 1¼ miles from the village.

Dog restrictions apply on Saundersfoot beach from the Harbour northwards for approximately 400 yards from 1st May to 30th September - the alleyway onto The Strand being the northern boundary.
