Monk Haven is a small sheltered cove near to the village of St Ishmaels. It is mostly red sandstone pebbles flanked by low sandstone cliffs, with sand at low tide and a small stream flowing down the beach. A large (15') wall with a tower at one end backs the beach. The wall was built in the 18th century to mark the boundary of the Trewarren estate, and the remains of another tower can be seen adjacent to the coast path to the east.
Access to the beach is via the coast path, or by following the narrow lane (signposted Monk Haven) on the west side of St Ishmaels village. This leads to St Ishmaels church where there is some space for parking. A good footpath follows the wooded valley down to the beach.
The photos were taken at low tide.
