Poppit Sands Beach

Poppit Sands PembrokeshirePoppit Sands is the most northerly beach in Pembrokeshire with a large expanse of flat sand which is backed by sand dunes.

About a mile or so from St Dogmaels a large car park (charged during summer months) is the first thing to greet you on arrival via the road. At the end of the car park is a cafe which also sells ice creams, buckets and spades, wet suits and other beach sundries.

From the cafe, cross over the small road towards the life saving station and take the wooden walk way to its left to get to the beach.

Poppit Sands Life BoatDuring the summer months there are lifeguards present at the beach and a safe swimming zone is also available. You may even see the lifeboat being launched – which is quite a spectacle.

The western side of the beach is the place to head for if rock pools and shelter from any westerly winds are required – head to the eastern side for sand dunes, the river Teifi and fishing spots.

Poppit Sands is becoming a very popular beach within the adventure sports groups and you will frequently find people having paragliding lessons, land boarding and power kiting at the beach.

Last Minute Wales Holiday CottagesThe beach is closed to dogs during the summer, but the area behind the dunes is still frequented by dog walkers at all times of the year.

From Poppit, the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path winds its way up on to the headland, where fine views north of the Ceredigion Coastline can be found.
