Monknash Beach is a lovely beach which isn't your usual type of beach. There's a mixture of sea and sand as well as pebbles, and there's loads of rock pools and cliffs to explore!
We recommend checking the tide times before visiting Monknash Beach as there's not much to see at high tide, however at low tide you can follow the cliff round to a sandy bay.
Great beach a very short drive from Cardiff. Pembroke is incredible - but not exactly a day trip. For an afternoon at the beach Monknash is a solid choice. – Google Review
The car park is a 15 minute walk to the beach and is via a nature reserve so you can't drive any closer, and we also recommend wearing comfy shoes as it's quite a rocky trail!
