The very sandy beach at Manorbier has fascinating rock formations close to the sea
line. Children will have fun with the many rock pools that trap small
sea creatures when the tide goes out. The beach faces south-west and is
popular with surfers.
Manorbier Castle is perched on a rock just above the beach. The castle
was the birthplace of 12th century churchman Gerald of Wales, who described
the village of Manorbier as "the pleasantest spot in Wales".
Pubs, restaurants and hotels are all within an easy (uphill) walk from
the beach. A wheelchair accessible path runs from the car park to the
top of Manorbier beach.
