Wisemans Bridge

Wisemans Bridge

Wisemans Bridge is a beach of rocks, sand and shingle, with a large stream (Fords Lake) emerging on the southern side. The road here runs along the seafront, and (free) roadside parking is available in the pebbly verge overlooking the shore. Access to the beach is a short walk down a steep slipway, or across the pebbles.

Northwards from Wisemans Bridge, the shore is initially rocky, becoming increasingly sandy on the approach to Amroth. To the south the shore is a mix of rocks, sand and rock-pools, with a substantial spring welling onto the beach just before Coppet Hall point. Dogs are allowed at all times.

Facilities include toilets (near the bridge) and a small shop in a caravan site. The Wisemans Bridge Inn has outdoor seating with views over Saundersfoot Bay.

The route of a former colliery tramway (which ran from Saundersfoot harbour to Stepaside) is now a foot / cycle path for most of its length. It can be followed along the base of the cliffs (and through two tunnels) to Coppet Hall beach, from where a cliff path offers an alternative return route. Alternatively, follow the path inland and up to the former Grove Colliery, where a concrete slab (which covers the old shaft) has a small hole in the centre through which stones can be dropped, sploshing into the water below a few seconds later.
