Marloes Sands

Marloes Sands

Marloes Sands is a mile long sandy beach with plenty of rock-pools. It stretches from Red Cliff at the south-western end to Gateholm Island at the other. Gateholm island is accessible from low to mid-tide as is the small beach of Albion Sands just beyond.

Marloes is popular with geologists, fossil hunters, anglers and surfers. Best surf conditions occur on a rising tide with SW winds and the best surfing area is towards the southern end, away from most of the rocks. It's a good beach for beginners. Dogs are allowed at all times.

Parking is at a National Trust (attended) car park which is signposted from Marloes village. Toilets can be found a short distance along a track which begins near the car park entrance, and access to the beach is a 10 - 15 minute walk along a gravelled bridle path which begins approximately 100 yards back along the lane.

There are no facilities at the beach, but Marloes village has a shop, cafe and a pub (The Lobster Pot Inn).
