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.
