Last weekend we headed down to Pembrokeshire to visit my Mum. We wanted to go to the beach for a walk and decided on Saundersfoot. During the Summer, it’s incredibly popular with holidaymakers & tourists. But during the winter, it’s turned over to the dogs! There were quite a few there on Saturday, leaping about in the waves.

Saundersfoot beach

We stayed on the main beach in Saundersfoot, though there are a couple of others you can access nearby. We arrived as the tide was out, which is when Saundersfoot beach is at its best. It’s a lovely beach, really wide and lovely golden sands. It gave Poppy a great opportunity to have a run around off the lead. It’s a nice and easy beach to walk along and is accessed straight from the harbour.

Be wary of razor clams that live in the sand. They can cut your feet if going barefoot and might be an issue for some dogs, though Poppy only gave them a little snuffle before moving on. It’s a great beach to go for a dog walk. It’s really spacious and you get great views of the beautiful Pembrokeshire coast. Great, rain or shine!

Dog walking Pembrokeshire

The Walk: Saundersfoot beach is a lovely long, wide beach (when the tide is out) but be aware that dogs are restricted during the summer season.
Cost: Free
Car Park: There’s parking right by the beach and it’s a Pay & Display car park. It’s quite a small car park but there are a few other car parks around the town.
Refreshments: There are quite a few cafes and restaurants in Saundersfoot so there are plenty of places to get a cup of tea. 
Toilets: There are public toilets on the harbour.
