Monkstone Beach

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.

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.
