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.
