Presipe Bay beach can genuinely be described as a hidden gem on the Pembrokeshire coast. Presipe beach consists of a wide stretch of golden sand backed by spectacular sandstone cliffs.
Vertical strata rise above you steeply from the beach. These towering red cliffs are packed with fossils, making it a geologist dream beach.
Please remember to check the tide times as it is worth noting that the beach becomes extremely small as the tide comes in.
This section of the Pembrokeshire National Park coast is home to the Royal Artillery Range at Manorbier.
You can only really access Presipe beach via the Pembrokeshire coastal path. You can either park for free and Skrinkle Haven. From here, follow the path around the perimeter of the Air Defence Range and across the field behind, which drops down towards a gate; this will lead you to the steps down to Presipe Beach. Alternative access is via the coastal path from Manorbier, where you can use the Pay and Display car park at Manorbier Beach and walk along the coastal path. This car park also uses the Pay by Phone App.
You can catch the Air Defence Range launching the Drones for target practice on certain days from this location.
