Wonderful coast and beaches. Nov 28, 2010
St Bride's Bay is a wide expanse of sea stretching from the St David's Peninsula (review) in the north to the Marloes Peninsula in the South. In contrast St Bride's Haven is one of the smallest beaches in the whole bay. We liked it as a place to arrive early as there is little parking and it seems more natural than many of the larger beaches. There are good rocks with interesting pools and an old lime kiln.

Marloes village is situated in roughly the middle (N-S) of the Marloes Peninsula with Marloes Beach to the south and Musselwick Sands to the north. Musselwick is covered at high tide but very atteactive when the tide is low. Marles Beach is not much use to the disadvantaged or families with pushcarts for young babies as there is an awkward path - but if you can get htem there, it is a great place for young children. There are huge stacks, around the bottom of which pools remain when the tide falls and in good weather they are warm enough to hold a young child in the water to enjoy it. For older children and adults the large beach is fun to explore.

The moorland at the western end of the peninsula gives views of the famous bird islands of Skomer and Skokholm and from the tiny inlet of martin's Haven where boats run to both in reasonable weather in summer.
