Caerfai Bay

Nr St Davids, Pembrokeshire

Quick Guide
See below grid for details

This is the nearest beach to St David's, and is popular for bathing with residents and visitors alike. Itís south-facing and quite sheltered. A small rocky cove at high tide, access to the beach is down a steep winding path. The rocks around are multi-coloured with a mixture of grey, green and vivid pink.

At high tide it consists entirely of rocks and boulders, but sand is revealed as the tide goes out. The bay is surrounded by impressive but unstable sandstone cliffs, and you can see evidence of rock-falls. There are several caves which you can explore, as well as interesting rock pools, but be careful not to get cut off by the rising tide.

This page is a Quick Guide, the idea of Quick Guides is to allow very basic information and linking forward information to be added to the system rather than having to wait until a full location guide has been developed. It should therefore be considered a development stage rather than a finished objective. Once more information is known the objective is to create either a Location or Featured Location page which has two grids and far more information.

Please let us know any other information that we can add to the Grid(s) or page and any errors that you discover. Before making a long trip to any location it is always wise to double check the current information, websites like magazines may be correct at the time the information is written, but things change and it is of course impossible to double check all entries on a regular basis. If you have any good photographs that you feel would improve the illustration of this page then please let us have copies. In referring to this page it is helpful if you quote both the Page Ref and Topic or Section references from the Grid below. To print the planning grid select it then right click and print the selected area.

Please submit information on locations you discover so that this system continues to grow.
