Wisemans Bridge

Wisemans Bridge

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

Northwards 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 rockpools, 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.

There are some good walks locally - one of which (about 2½ miles) is to the former Grove colliery where a concrete slab covering 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. The following directions should be sufficient to complete the walk:
Take the narrow lane heading inland near the bridge, and follow (the road) for a good ¾ mile. Just before its junction with the Sardis road, a footpath on the right leads down to the colliery (pick up some small stones here). The old buildings can be seen, as well as the slab covering the shaft. Continue down to the valley bottom and join the road, branching right after a short distance onto the route of the colliery tramway back to Wisemans Bridge.
