 This is a busy beach but you can drive here no walking to the beach and all amenities are ready at hand.

There is a car park at the southern end of the beach opposite Haven Sports and a larger car park a small distance from the beach at the North 

Broad Haven is an ideal place to visit for those keen on water sports. Activities include surfing, canoeing, sea kayaking, fishing, swimming, and safe bathing. No equipment.. No problem! There is the Haven Sports shop close to the sea front where surf boards and kayaks are available for hire.
For those who enjoy walking there are plenty of walks up amongst the cliffs on both sides of the beach. Towards the headland to the north of the beach you will find interesting geological features including several stacks, such as the Sleek Stone, a huge whale-like projection which is in fact part of an up-fold in the Coal Measures. There is also Den's Door, which, interestingly, has two arches through its base.

Broad Haven beach is a must see for visitors to Pembrokeshire. Flanked by cliffs on both sides and with wide, glorious, golden sands, the beach is a 'haven' for all the family. There are majestic views both from the beach over St Bride's Bay and also from the top of the cliffs. As well as safe bathing and swimming, Broad Haven beach also offers opportunities to windsurf and sail on its calm waters when conditions are right. The beach offers something for everyone, whether that being water sports, playing games on the beach with all the family, rock-pooling for the children and adults or peaceful walks taking in the magnificent and incredible views of the bay.
The beach is a paradise for children and is one of the finest in Pembrokeshire. Below the cliffs there are numerous rock pools and on the north end of the beach is the craggy Lions Head. Haven Sports have a well stocked water sports shop near the sea front. They also offer surf board and kayak hire.
Other sea front facilities include The Galleon Inn, The Ocean Cafe, The Anchor Guesthouse and a well stocked village shop. Another pub, The Royal, is set further back in the older part of the village.
