Cresswell Quay is a picture postcard hamlet on the Cresswell river, and a good place to relax on a summer's evening. The quay, once used for shipping anthracite now provides parking and outdoor seating for the popular Cresselly Arms pub. The river can usually be crossed by stepping stones, but these become submerged at high tide. On the opposite side of the river a footpath leads along the banks of the river to Lawrenny, whilst other public footpaths lead off in most directions.
There are toilets here and parking is on the roadside or grass verge.
