Visit Porthlysgy Beach

Porthlysgy beach is a rural bay on the Pembrokeshire coast in Wales. Tucked away off the beaten path and surrounded by towering cliffs, this secluded cove can only be accessed by foot via the coastal path.

Surrounded by rural farmland, this beach is great for beachcombing, rock pooling, and sunbathing on a hot summers day.
