"Sittin' on the dock of the bay"

Marloes Sands Beach

Measuring approximately 2 kilometres in length, this isolated beach is sandy, with a pebble bank above the high tide mark, backed by steep limestone cliffs. Marloes Sands faces south east into the Bristol Channel, towards Stockholm island. The surrounding land is predominantly agricultural, with the small town of Marloes located 1.3 kilometres north west of the bay. The coastal waters and coastal belt form part of the Pembrokeshire Marine Special Area of Conservation and is also designated as Special Site of Scientific Interest, confirming the high conservation status of the area. The bathing water also lies within Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use. Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
