Monk Haven

Monk Haven

Monk Haven is a small sheltered cove near to the village of St Ishmaels. The shore is mostly red sandstone pebbles flanked by low sandstone cliffs and some low tide sand. A stream flows across the beach which is backed by a high castellated wall. This was built in the 18th century to mark the boundary of the Trewarren estate, and the remains of a tower can be seen adjacent to the coastal path to the east.

Access to the beach is via the coastal path, or by taking a narrow lane (signposted to Monk Haven) on the west side of St Ishmaels village. This leads to St Ishmaels church where there is some space for parking. From here, a good footpath continues along the wooded valley to the beach.

The photos were taken at low tide.
