Freshwater East Beach In Pembrokeshire

Freshwater East Beach

Freshwater East Beach in Pembrokeshire is a good all-round beach.

Located on the South-East coast of Pembrokeshire, the beach is well-sized and caters to a wide variety of tastes.

At half a mile long, especially at low tide, the beach is well-sized.

Furthermore, the beach is an excellent choice for those with mobility issues and young families.

Another excellent choice, especially for those with mobility issues is Newport Sands

Facilities At The Beach

Toilets are right by the main entrance to the beach.

In-season, an icecream van is often present on the nearby car park.

A petrol service station is less than 5-minutes away by car should you need any essentials.

The beach is a short drive from Pembroke, which has many excellent facilities and things to do, such as Pembroke Castle.

On The Beach

The beach its self is a mixture of fine sand and semi-course sand mixed with some small pebbles and shingle.

For the most part, the sand is fine and golden towards the rear of the beach, and when at low tide.

There is a belt of pebbles, stones and shingle in a strip that runs the length of the beach.

Sand dunes back the beach for approximately half of it.

There are rock formations and pools at either end of the beach.

The beach is dog friendly, has a decent surf and attracts a mixture of people.

There is a stream that runs onto the beach, which makes for an interesting feature and is popular with children.

Final Thoughts

The beach overall is good and will suit many different types of people.

It is not the best beach in the area. We believe that Newgale beach is the best overall all-round beach of choice, but it is close to 1-hour away by car.

Alternatively, Barafundle Bay is a short drive away. It depends on what you are after in a beach.

Freshwater East Beach will tick many boxes for many people, but for those looking for something more specific, they may wish to seek other options in the area.
