8 Must see views near Manorbier

Spend Time Exploring This Gorgeous Part Of The Coastline

  1. Manorbier Castle – the most iconic view in Manorbier, this fabulous castle sits proudly overlooking the Manorbier Bay beach. The Castle is open to the public during March to October and is well worth a visit, with the cosy café being perfect for an afternoon tea.
  2. Skrinkle Haven – the clifftop views from Skinkle Haven are superb and the walks along the cliff tops provide views towards both Tenby and Freshwater East. Steps lead down to this beautiful secluded bay, probably one of the most picturesque in Pembrokeshire.
  3. Church Doors Cove – located at the eastern end of Skrinkle Haven and accessible only at low tide, so check tide times before visiting to make sure you don’t get cut off by the incoming tide. The forces of the sea cut through the cliffs to form a huge door leading to this cove, hence the name Church Doors Cove.
  4. The King’s Quoit cromlech is located on the cliff overlooking Manorbier bay and is the most notable monument in Manorbier.
  5. Manorbier village – this picturesque village is dotted with Pembrokeshire cottages, pretty gardens and country lanes making it a perfect picture postcard village to photograph.
  6. Manorbier Church – the pretty St James’s parish church sits on a hill opposite the castle. Dating from the 12th Century, medieval ceiling paintings still survive in the porch of this Grade 1 listed building.
  7. Manorbier beach – the level walk from the car park down to the sand and pebble beach crosses a stream with a small footbridge. The beach is good for fossils and exploring the rock formations. It is also a very popular beach for surfing and local fishermen say it’s a good beach for bass fishing.
  8. Pembrokeshire Coast Path – the coast path runs through Manorbier and the views along the way are superb. Horses graze the headlands and it is not uncommon to come across them on a walk, when they will happily tag along with you for a while.
