Saundersfoot is one of Pembrokeshire’s finest seaside towns. Located at the foot of a picturesque wooded valley in the heart of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Saundersfoot boasts an attractive harbour and expansive sandy beach which provides opportunities for boating, watersports, fishing or just soaking up the sunshine.
Saundersfoot also provides easy access to Amroth where the beach is the starting point of the 186 mile Pembrokeshire Coast Path. Just ten minutes away lies the popular resort of Tenby, larger than its neighbour but no less appealing, with shimmering bays and a rich medieval history. Also within easy reach is Haverfordwest, the county town of Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire, famous for its delicious cheese.
We use the Merlewood Hotel, which occupies a commanding position overlooking the bay.
The centre of Saundersfoot has plenty to offer; there are several craft and antique shops dotted around the village and many of its shops are located right by the sea front, along with tea rooms and ice cream parlours with lovely sea views.
Saundersfoot boasts no less than six beaches; the main beach has an expansive stretch of golden sand which, on clear days, provides stunning views across the bay to the Gower Peninsula. Glen Beach is smaller and is accessible via the harbour.
