Reasons for trip

Culture/Sightseeing

After a few days exploring beaches in the vicinity, we popped into the Visitor’s Centre in St. David’s to get some advice on which beach to visit a bit further afield. Luckily one of the staff members recommended we to go Marloes Sands, about a 45 minute drive away. It turned out to be the best beach we visited on our week in the area. We parked at the National Trust car park. From there we walked past Runwayskiln (which wasn’t open that day) to the coast path and beach access. It was stunning!

It’s a steep path down to the beach and a bit rocky in places but it is well worth it. We had two border collie and corgi cross dogs with us and they loved playing ball on the beach. It was a beautiful sunny day and we enjoyed a picnic on the rocks – the waves rolling in to the front of us and the towering cliffs made of sedimentary sandstone behind us. Along with long expanses of sand there are also lots of rock pools to explore. After we’d had our fill of the views along the beach, we walked back up to the coast path and along by Marloes Mere where we were attacked by a swarm of midges. At least, two of us were. For some reason, my uncle is never bothered by biting bugs but my aunt and I get devoured. We turned around and headed back to the car park and treated ourselves to 99s from a little van in the road.

We then headed over to the other National Trust car park at Marten’s Haven and walked around the Deer Park to Wooltack Point. We took the less steep path that is longer but also affords lovely views of the coastline and the sheer cliffs down to Deadman’s Bay. Walking along the paths through the gorse on Wooltack Point was a change from our walks on the beach earlier in the day.

It is possible to park in one lot and walk to both areas along the coast path.
