From seabirds to seals the Marloes Peninsula is the perfect destination for animal lovers.

Another added: “What a beautiful beach! We came on a bank holiday from Kent and were so surprised that it wasn’t busy at all. It’s a great walk along the Pembrokeshire Coast path.

“We walked along to Gateholm Island as well which is stunning. It’s definitely worth a visit to the Runwayskiln Café nearby as well – that has a great view of the sea.

A third agreed: “We visited Marloes Sands as a couple with our dog and did some of the coastal walking around the area. This beach was stunning! There are gorgeous views and plenty of rock pools to explore.”
