Manorbier

Manorbier is on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. Pronounced "manna beer", this village has the most delightful beach which is so popular with families that parking can be difficult at the height of the summer season. Get there early! Out of season it's far less crowded and the car park is free.


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.
