Broad Haven

Broad Haven is a wide sandy beach in St Brides Bay on Pembrokeshire's west coast. There are two P&D car parks - a small one on the seafront (Marine Road) and a larger one on Millmoor Way (just off the B4341 Haverfordwest Road). Other facilities include toilets (with disabled facilities), a pub (The Galleon Inn), cafes, take-aways, a post office, a surf shop and a seating area with cycle stands. Access to the beach is down steps, a ramp or a slipway.

The beach is firm golden sand backed by some shingle and a sea wall, with cliffs of sandstones and shales on either side. Two small streams emerge onto the beach. At low tide it is possible to walk around to Settlands beach and Little Haven. It's a bit more sheltered for surfing than Newgale and has cleaner, smaller surf - best on a rising tide. Kite / windsurfing are also popular and surfboard and wetsuit hire are available. Swimming here is generally safe.

Lifeguards are on duty from the end of June to early September, and dog restrictions apply on the northern section of the beach from 1st May to 30th September.
