Access to the beach is from the coastal path with parking, toilets and a cafe available at near by Whitesands beach. The water at Porthmelgen can be a little rough due to the strong currents, but beginner surfers and body boarding enthusiasts should be ok. This area can get very windy in the evenings so blow away the cobwebs and watch the sun descend after a fantastic day exploring the beaches of North Pembrokeshire.
