Caerfai Bay is a tidal beach with beautiful sands and fascinating rock pools when the tide is out. There is a concrete path down to the beach, some steps and a few stones and pebbles just before the sand. There are many other beaches to visit locally such as Whitesands, Porth Melgan, and Abereiddy. The Pembrokeshire Coast Path is approximately 180 miles long and is only a minute walk from the Park.
