Martin's Haven

Whether you want to catch a boat to the Island of Skomer, go scuba diving or are just looking for an interesting beach, Martin's Haven is the place to go. On the day we visited, adult and baby seals were basking on the beach.

Martin's Haven is a tiny bay, located on Pembrokeshire's Dale Peninsular, with a small beach, cliff walks and wonderful views across St Bride's Bay towards St David's.

Facilities include toilets and a gift shop (good quality but expensive). Parking is about 500 metres away in a National Trust car park (fee payable for non-members).

The walk from car park to and from Martin's Haven beach is a little steep, but all on a road so is suitable for most people including those with many types of disability.

Seals were basking on this Pembrokeshire beach when we visited in September.
This was the cutest!


Take the B4327 from Haverfordwest towards Dale. Turn off for Marloes, go through the village then turn left for Martin's Haven. Do not attempt to drive onto the beach - use the car park.
