Freshwater West is our seaside star and a must-visit beach in Pembrokeshire. It’s breathtakingly beautiful, perfect for family adventures and a favourite with watersports enthusiasts.
The southwesterly facing beach is popular with surfers and is often regarded as one of Wales’ best surfing spots, with consistent swell and waves.
It’s not all about the watersports though, there’s plenty to see and do on the sand.
There are buckets (and buckets) of sand to go around, have fun building sandcastles, try kite flying and enjoy this wild stretch of coast. The beach has a wealth of rockpools; mini explorers love delving into these underwater worlds and spotting marine creatures.
We often host beach cleans here to keep this special place clean and tidy; grab a litter picker and join us.
