Caerfai is a sun trap, perfect for small families, this little cove near St David’s has rocks to ramble through and explore. At low tide the beach is a sandy beach and is great for building sand castles with forts and rivers from the streams coming out of the rock pools.
The beach is approached down some steps from the cliff top where there is some parking and views across the bay can be enjoyed. The tall cliffs act like a sun trap for the beach making it a great place to relax on the warm rocks which help keep the beach somewhat enclosed, making it safe for children The water is clear and the waves make it suitable for body boarding, at low tide you can explore around the corner to a tiny cove where the rocks are curved and smooth to touch. A visit to Caerfai Organic Farm at the top of the beach near old welsh cottages is a good day out. The farm has been organic since 1993 and has been recognised with Soil Association status. Pick up some delicious homemade cheese from the farm shop. For something more sweet take a trip into near by St David’s, the smallest city in the UK and visit the Bench where you can enjoy delicious ice cream made from Caerfai Organic Farm’s milk. This popular and friendly bar is open for coffee late into the evening. At night be sure to look out for activities in the cathedral after dark including bat spotting tours.
