Monkstone Haven

Monkstone is a great place to escape the crowds and cool off with a summer swim or cast a line.

Dog friendly?
Dogs are allowed year round. There is a responsibility for dog owners to clean up after their dogs on the whole of this site.

Getting there
You can get to Monkstone by bike with the Celtic Trail passing nearby Saundersfoot. Why not lock up the bikes and walk along the beach at low tide. The beach is part of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path National Trail. Access to the beach is down a steep path with steps. It is not suitable for pushchairs. By car go via Trevayne Farm. This is at the end of a lane leading off the B4316, near the roundabout where you leave the A478 for Saundersfoot. A permissive footpath leads to the beach, a distance of about 500 metres. It’s very steep, with steps in places. There is a charge for parking at the farm.

Site description
This beach, just south of Monkstone Point, is fine golden sand with occasional rocks and a pebble bank at the high tide line. The steep cliffs behind the beach are loose and unstable, and should not be climbed. Always quieter than nearby Saundersfoot and Tenby.

There are no facilities at Monkstone but all can be found at nearby Saundersfoot. There are no litter bins or a beach cleaning service at Monkstone. Please help keep Monkston beautiful and take all your litter home.

Pembrokeshire County Council Bathing Water Byelaws apply to the whole area off this beach.
