Despite the rather macabre sounding name, Bullslaughter Bay is actually a very pleasant little beach. Set in a cove of high limestone cliffs, punctuated by caves and arches this is a great spot for explorers of all ages.
The inviting clean, clear water here is perfect for a paddle and swimming is generally safe, although there probably won’t be anyone here to save you if you do get into trouble!
As with many of these ‘secret’ coves along the Pembrokeshire coast you will want to visit when the tide is low. Otherwise the beach is very much diminished with just a pebble section remaining above the high tide mark,
Before you go off to check the tides and plan your visit you\‘ll need to check one more thing. Access to the beach is across the Castlemartin MoD range, so if you would like to avoid being disappointed (or blown up!) it is worth checking when exercises are taking place.
