Martin’s Haven is the doorway to the fantastic Wildlife Islands of Pembrokeshire. This pretty little beach has boats leaving to Skokholm and Skomer on a regular basis. Book one to travel to these important and very beautiful nature reserves, which are managed by The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales. The beach itself is a small rocky and partially sanded bay with rugged rocks breaking the waves as they meet the shore, it is still part of the Skomer marine nature reserve and as National Trust land is protected accordingly. It is a particular hotspot for seeing Seals basking on the rocks, so if you would like to see some wildlife up close whilst you are on holiday in Pembrokeshire then this beach is a good place to visit. The wildlife also continues under the water with Martin’s Haven being a popular place for diving.
Access to the beach is by way of a winding path from the car park. There are also toilets available near by and Lockley Lodge, run by the Wildlife trust is an informative visitors centre. It has plenty to read and tells you about the sea birds in the reserve, it even has cameras set up on the cliffs to view the birds, view the footage at Lockley Lodge before browsing through their gift shop. This whole area of Pembrokeshire is an oasis for wildlife, so whilst on a walking weekend you should try the area of the Marloes peninsula known as The Deer Park, there aren’t any Deer, but the sea birds over the bay and the wild ponies grazing near by offer plenty to see, For a really active weekend away in inspiring scenery then take the National Trail from Martin’s Haven towards Dale, it is a ten mile route across rugged outcrops and winding stretches of the coastal path.
To arrive at Martin’s Haven travel towards Dale but turn off at Marloes and then take a left for Martin’s Haven. For a bite to eat near by you could try the Clock house in Marloes, they have a small cafe offering cakes and small lunches.
