    Beautiful beach, avoid the cliff walk though
    This is a national trust beach. It's amazingly clean and has a fresh water stream running to it which creates a lovely waterfall. Is totally recommend spending time in the beach. The water is super clean and there's a coffee spot at the top. Dogs are allowed to up until the 1st May. However, there's a very tempting cliff top walk around the back of the church to mount Mwnt. If you've got small children or mobility issues I'd avoid this. Our kids are 7 and 12 and it's very precarious. A narrow path and no railings in sight with a sheer drop on one side into the sea. We spent the whole time panicking and couldn't get down fast enough. Not for the faint of heart.

    A very good beach and headland!!
    You'll need to pack all you need no shops around! Beautiful beach (sandy) also waterfalls leading to it. If you climb to the top of the Mwnt headland the views are spectacular!!! National Trust car park.

    A lovely find
    Beautiful and unspoilt. This little beach has quote a few steps to access it but worth the visit. There us a Beautiful Chapel in the cliff top and and views are spectacular. You can even grab a coffee in a little coffee shop

    Beautiful small beach and amazing views
    Plenty of parking- £4 for all day (coins only) or free for National Trust members. Short downhill walk to the beach. There is a small cafe/shop and toilets half way down to the beach. Proper clean sand which amazing views. There are walks around the bay on the cliffs you can do if you fancy it. Beautiful day so was quite busy for such a small beach

    A special place
    Would definitely go again. Adequate pay and display car park - free for National Trust members. Nearby cafe selling some basic beach kit. Nearby loos. Spectacular walk up nearby hill with a pretty ancient church at its base.

    Beautiful shame about the car park fee
    Beautiful beech and a fair walk down and back up not for anyone with a bit of a disability but if you are able bodied wow this is an amazing little find. National trust so expensive to park and only all day rate available. You should include an hourly rate as sometimes people only want a quick walk and then move on

    Beautiful little gem of a beach with stunning views of sunsets
    Absolutely stunning little beach tucked away down some little lanes. Car park quite small so need to get there early. £5 for the day which is good but like others have said if you just want a little walk or investigate then it's a bit much. Steep steps from car park to actual beach so carrying items can be an issue. Small ice cream hut and toilets located at the top of steps. We had a full day there beautiful views from the side hills and were lucky enough to see a dolphin swim by. When the tide goes out it's still not too far to walk and not too muddy either.

    What a gem!
    Absolutely stunning place with beach, waterfall, toilets and teeny tiny shop. 137 steps but really not as daunting as they might look, my 4 year old managed fine. Obviously better in good weather which, we were lucky to get.

    Breathtaking
    Mwnt is such a wonderful place, great beach, lovely shop/cafe but the best is the views from the top of the Mwnt. It's a single track walk around the literal edge which gives the most breathtaking amazing views. It was extremely windy when we were there so extra extra care needed to be taken. Lovely place, well worth a visit.

    Wonderful!
    A neighbour advised to visit as we were in the area. So on boxing day we drove to it and parked in the NT car park. £4 if not a member . Coast line path which incorporates the sheltered beach in a 3 mile figure of 8 walk. There are toilets ( which were open) the cafe is open during tourist season, so closed today as you would expect. Concrete steps to the beach. I didn't find them steep as a 60 year old. They zig zag their way down which makes it a lot easier . A sheltered beach. Not large like others. A lovely white church which you can look a round and still in use. We will go back in the warmer weather to complete the walk.

Just beautiful. Unspoilt and quiet. A lovely walk nearby on the coastal path too, and the little white church is well worth a look.

Lovely little hide away. Car park at the top of the cliffs so prepare to carry things down. Only downside is the car park machine only takes cash, so take change with you!
