I always like finding somewhere new to walk Poppy. Not only because it keeps things interesting for me, but her reaction whenever we go somewhere new, is priceless. So last time we were in Pembrokeshire, we headed to Manorbier beach, which is dog friendly all year round. It’s not the biggest of beaches in the area, but access to the Pembrokeshire Coastal path is really easy to get to, so if you wanted something bigger, head up to the path.
After a little stroll on the beach, which was packed due to the beautiful weather, we headed over the to the rock pools. Poppy isn’t keen on swimming in the sea, but she does love a good snuffle around rock pools. Fortunately, there are plenty to explore and she had us chasing after her, clambering over rocks, like the best of them!
Then, we headed up onto the coastal path. We hadn’t planned to go onto the path, so we just walked a bit and then turned around and walked back. However, there are a couple of circular walks encompassing Manorbier bay, which can be found on the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park website and I’d love to do one of these one day. It is a popular little spot and well worth a visit if you’re in the area.
The Walk: The beach isn’t very wide so if you’re interested in a long walk, then head up on to the coastal path, where you can walk for as long as you like!
Cost: There’s no entry charge, but you will need to pay for parking. We did consider heading to the Castle as well, but you do have to pay for entry there. More info here.
Car Park: Parking is pay and display in all Pembrokeshire Coast Car Parks, but it is pretty reasonable and transferable between Pembrokeshire Coast car parks.
Refreshments: While there’s no where to buy refreshments, there was an ice cream van in the car park and there is a cafe in Manorbier itself.
Toilets: There are some just inside the car park.
