Caerfai, the nearest beach to historic St Davids, has long been popular for bathing with residents and visitors alike. At high tide it consists entirely of rocks and boulders, but sand is revealed as the tide goes out. The sheltered bay is surrounded by impressive but unstable sandstone cliffs with plenty of evidence of rock falls. There are several caves to explore, as well as interesting rock pools. There is a car park above the beach and access from here to the beach is via a steep path which may cause difficulty for people with limited mobility. The beach is part of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path with stunning, unspoilt coastal scenery in both directions. Much of the coastline in this area is owned by the National Trust.
