Lydstep Caverns Beach can be accessed from the Free National Trust Car Park at the top of Lydstep Head. To find the car park from the direction of Tenby, as you drive through Lydstep Village, you will pass The Lydstep Tavern. Take the first left, which is signposted as a dead end. This will then lead you down a narrow track for around 500 metres; at this point, it will bear round to the left, and then you will see the track up to your right to the car park.

From here, it is just a short walk down to Lydstep Caven's beach. From the car park, walk towards the sea past a concrete pillar and a Second World War gun emplacement. Here the path divides, turn right for a view of the beach, caverns and across to Manorbier Artillery Range.

Lydstep Head itself is an excellent cliff-top walk for wildlife watching. The head is rich in wildflowers and butterflies through the summer, while the cliffs are home to razorbills, choughs, fulmars and gulls. There are fabulous views out to sea, and on clear days you can see Lundy Island and the Somerset coastline. You might even be lucky enough to spot dolphins or porpoises.

To explore the caverns, bear right where you leave the car park and go down the 100+ steps to the beach. This beach is spectacular and is at its best viewed at low tide. The caverns themselves are also only accessible at low tide, so please check the times if you want to explore them.
