Saundersfoot Beach

Situated in front of the village of Saundersfoot with its small harbour this sandy beach is very popular. The gently sloping sands make for safe swimming and all amenities are provided by the shops and cafes along the beach front. All in all this a great family beach.

A short walk to the north, along the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, is the hamlet of Wisemans Bridge which is linked to Saundersfoot by a cliff tunnel.

Saundersfoot Beach Reviews

Rules being abused by fellow dog owners

May 17th 2022

We spent the day in Saundersfoot today and the dog ban on the main beach was totally being ignored by my fellow dog owners with large numbers of large bread running free and pooping where the kids play. This is totally laziness as a short walk takes you to Wisemans Bridge where dogs can run free all year long.

beautiful village

Relaxed and picturesque, can be busy at peak summer periods. Cute harbour, great pubs/restaurants, gorgeous countryside around - what else could you want? Oh yes that beach and cristal clear water and, of course, the hospitality of the Welsh!!

What did we get wrong?
