Manorbier Bay - Dyfed

Often described as one of the most beautiful spots in Wales, Manorbier Bay is one of the area's most popular beaches.

The sandy shoreline of Manorbier Bay is surrounded by cliffs and dunes and the dramatic landscape makes the area extremely popular with walkers. A portion of the famous Pembrokeshire Coastal Path runs from Manorbier to Tenby and attracts a wide array of visitors to the beach.

Swimming and surfing are two of the most popular pastimes here at Manorbier, but the beach is a great location for a variety of activities including canoeing and angling. At low tide, rock pooling is also a popular way to spend the hours. In the summer, the water and beach can get very crowded, so it is suggested to arrive early if you are planning on partaking in any watersports or activities.

Manorbier Bay is overlooked by the 12th Century Church of St. James and the medieval Manorbier Castle. For history and archeology lovers, the King's Quoit, a Neolithic chambered tomb that also sits above the bay, is of particular interest.

The village of Manorbier as well as the surrounding areas offer plenty to see and do and are picturesque places to spend the day away from the hustle and bustle of the beach.
