Marloes Sands is the most recent Pembrokeshire beach to have been snapped up by Hollywood. Beautifully featured in the fantasy film Snow White and the Huntsman, the beach is shown off as a truly wild and rugged place. This magnificent beach is never crowded and is a place to let the wind blow away the cobwebs while you walk along the shoreline with the waves crashing at your feet. Keep a look out by your toes though as the beach is considered a good fossil hunting site!
Unfortunately there are no facilities on the beachside but there are toilets, cafes and small shops available in Marloes village. The Lobster Pot Inn has a fine reputation for its good menu. They offer traditional pub cuisine as well as a fish menu. The impressive rock formations which dot the beach generate a strong geological interest in the area, but Marloes is also home for holidays exploring Pembrokeshire’s surf. The bay offers incredible views out to sea and the uninhabited wildlife reserve island of Skokholm can be seen in the distance. It is an internationally recognised reserve of sea birds and has populations including those of Manx Shearwaters, Puffins, Razorbills and Guillemots. The wildlife exists near to the shore however with the Marloes Mere. Take the National Trust recommended walk and you will be sure to see some fantastic wildlife, plenty of birds from the hideouts or if you are out later and hear some rustling it might be a local badger foraging for food.
Once all this wild and rugged landscape has filled you will inspiration then why not treat yourself to an Art lesson overlooking the coast. Local artist Jo Kimpton offers courses and tuition in small groups and in one to one classes.
