Visit Porthselau Beach

Porthselau Beach in St Davids, is a little sandy beach backed by the Pembrokeshire Coastal path. When the tide goes out, rocky outcrops are exposed, ideal for rookpooling.

This beach is lovely, slightly quiter than nearby Whitesands. Relax on the sand, or explore the rock pools (at low tide). Swimming is safe here and kayaking is popular.

Access to the beach is from the campsite at Pencarnan Farm.
