Marloes Sands and Mere

People walking towards Marloes Sands

Marloes’ landscape is a colourful combination of coast and countryside with sweeping sands and thriving wetlands. A must-visit for beach-bodies and birdwatchers, spending time on the shore is easy here as is getting to see the local wildlife.

Marloes Sands

The beach itself is a safe, sandy stretch that’s suitable for bathing and making a splash, of course. It’s one of Pembrokeshire’s finest and is easily accessible from our on-site car park.

Take a seaside stroll and you’ll notice that the south side of the peninsula consists of sedimentary sandstone. The rock pools are great here too, with a wealth of marine creatures calling Marloes home.

Marloes Mere

Just inland you’ll find Marloes Mere, a wetland bustling with birdlife. Wildlife watching is a must, so bring out the binoculars and bunk up at one of the hides overlooking the site.

The Mere is important for its breeding, migrant and wintering birds. Waterfowl and birds of prey are familiar faces in the winter months whilst spring sees the wetland alive with song.
