Freshwater East is located just 4 miles outside historic Pembroke town. Right in the heart of the beautiful Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, it is a truly unspoilt rural seaside location.
The long golden sandy beach sheltered by sand dunes, is perfect for idyllic family days at the seaside and the children will love exploring the rock pools and splashing about in the clear blue sea. The calm waters of the bay are perfect for swimming, kayaking and bodyboarding, with the level pristine sands being perfect for beach games, sunbathing and relaxing in this wonderfully peaceful setting.
In winter, Freshwater East is a popular spot with surfers too, when the winter swells provide some awesome surf waves, but only recommended for the experienced surfer.
If you enjoy walking then this is the perfect spot; the coastal path offers fabulous walks in all directions, with spectacular coastal scenery and hidden coves to discover along the way; head East to the pretty and remote Swanlake Bay, then on to Manorbier with its fabulous castle on the hill and a quaint village pub; or head West to discover beautiful Stackpole Quay with its historic walled gardens with a cosy café, and the award-winning Stackpole Inn.
Freshwater East is a superb choice for family seaside holidays and with the beach being dog-friendly all year round. The Secret Marsh Nature Reserve, found to the rear of the car park, is the perfect place to observe wildlife and discover the fascinating plants, animals, birds and insects that make their home here.
Aside from the wider Freshwater East area, there is also a purpose-built holiday park, The Freshwater Bay Holiday Village, located close to Trewent, a few hundred yards from the beach, where we have numerous holiday homes. The site has a clubhouse serving food and drink, plus a shop and hire facilities for water sports equipment.
So if you want to experience a truly unspoilt seaside holiday location set amidst glorious countryside and breath-taking coastal scenery, then Freshwater East is the perfect choice for a truly relaxing holiday, ideal for families, couples, lone travellers and dog lovers alike.
