Wisemans Bridge Beach

Wisemans Bridge Beach - Pembrokeshire
© Humphrey Bolton and licensed for reuse under this Licence

Wisemans Bridge Beach lies between Saundersfoot and Amroth and is linked to the rest of the coastline via a series of paths and tunnels. As such, ramblers flock here for the scenic views and the sheer number of trails in the area.

You can easily walk here from Saundersfoot and it is a good choice if Amroth is crowded in the summer months. One of the best ways to get to the beach is to walk along the National Park Coastal Footpath which links to the main village street and then continues on to the border between Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire.

The beach here is made up of sand and rocks backing onto a pebble bank. The wide expanse of sand at low tide is ideal for beach games or letting the dog have a run.
Swimming here is generally safe, although there is no lifeguard service.

The beach has several rocky promontories that surround it and has a multitude of rock to explore. This area is also famous for its drowned forest and when tides are very low you may be able to see blue clay and the original petrified tree stumps. Sometimes other ancient objects are washed ashore including bones, fossils and even antlers.

The beach was known for its coal industry in the days of old and the tunnels that surround it would have been used by coal trams to transport the coal to the boats to be exported all over the country. Nowadays you can still explore the tunnels, especially if you are walking between Wisemans Bridge and nearby Saundersfoot.

Wisemans Bridge Beach Reviews

The reviews seem quite low. I thought this was a really lovely place to visit. Through the tunnels along the coast. Lovely pathways that come out near the ironworks place. Sea really nice to swim in.
