Presipe Bay (pronounced 'Prez-ippee') is one of Pembrokeshire's lesser known beaches and is only worth visiting around low tide. Outside this time there's very little beach available. Access is from the coastal path, with 162 steep steps descending to the shore. Directions: Turn off the B4585 (Manorbier road) in Skrinkle village towards the youth hostel and take the Wales Coastal footpath on the right immediately before the artillery range. There is some space for roadside parking here. Follow the path around the perimeter of the range and across a field until you reach the steps at the west side of the beach. Alternative access is via the coastal path from Manorbier.
The beach itself is sandy backed by cliffs of sandstones and mudstones in almost vertical strata. It can be good for surfing around low tide once the sea is clear of the rocks.
Dogs are allowed at all times. The photos were taken an hour before low tide.

This beach truly is the definition of a hidden gem. It's name doesn't appear on Google maps or Google earth but don't let that put you off - this is a spectacular beach with huge rock formations and beautiful sandy beach that is best visited at low tide, so check the tide times and plan your visit accordingly, and you'll be rewarded with views that rival some of the better known beaches such as Skrinklehaven, Swan Lake Bay or Barafundle. Being small relatively remote and only accessible by 160 steps and clambering over various boulders, you may never see another person while you are there whether that's for half an hour or until the tide chases you back up the steps. Well worth the half hour or so walk from Manorbier.
