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 high wall with a tower backs the beach. This 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 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.
