Paddle boarding and surfing at Broad Haven
Paddle boarding and surfing at Broad Haven in Pembrokeshire

Broad Haven South beach

A wide sandy bay backed by dunes that lead from The National Trust owned Bosherston Lakes. This beach has masses of soft sand at low tide ensuring enough space for everyone .Access from the car park above the beach at its southern end is not suitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs due to the number of steep steps down the cliff.

Access is much better from the northern end through the lily ponds with board walks onto the sand. Please be aware that the sea of Broad Haven South has strong currents.

Explore the boulders and ‘island’ on the west side to discover caves and springs gushing out of the cliffs. The convoluted low cliffs on the east side have a few small caves at low tide.

The clean stream emptying out of the lily ponds runs along this side and is perfect for small children to playing paddle board in. There’s also a good rock for jumping off at high tide.
