Beach Overview

Shrinkle Haven Beach is picture perfect and is located about 1 mile south-east of Manorbier and about 6 miles from the tourist hotspot town of Tenby. It is the slightly larger bay to its neighbour Church Doors Cove.

A peaceful beach that surrenders a delightful sweep of sand at low tide. This is a spectacular stretch of the Pembrokeshire coastline and a world away from the crowds at Tenby, offering tranquility and a remote escape.

More Information

Church Doors Cove domineering high cliffs surround this bay. Shrinkle Haven was, for many years, cut off from the outside world, as it was part of an RAF missile-testing site. However, since this has stopped the bay has become accessible.

Easy Access?

Access is via Church Doors Cove, using some steep steps from the coast path. At low tide, you can walk around the Limestone ridge to Skrinkle Haven or alternatively, there is a route through an arch. Please note that this can be slippy and in both cases, please keep a close watch on the tides.

Facilities

There are no facilities at this secluded bay. The nearest facilities can be found at Manorbier or Lydstep.
