Marloes Sands is a mile long sandy beach with plenty of rockpools. 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 at low to mid 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).
