Long Description:
Caerfai Bay - Located near St Davids in Pembrokeshire, Wales.
The views are spectacular, in this area of outstanding natural beauty. The Cliffs have a purple tint. A small sandy beach is reachable at low tide by steep steps. Free parking is available above the beach with picnic benches and is a designated viewpoint, with spectacular views of the Caerfai Bay and the islands of Skomer and Skokholm.

"Pembrokeshire Coast National Park was established as a National Park in 1952, and is the only one in the United Kingdom to have been designated primarily because of its spectacular coastline. It is one of three National Parks in Wales, the others being the Brecon Beacons (Bannau Brycheiniog) and Snowdonia (Eryri).

The National Park has a varied landscape of rugged cliffs, sandy beaches, wooded estuaries and wild inland hills, covering a total area of 629 km2 (243 sq mi). It falls into four distinct sections. Running clockwise around the coast, these are the south Pembrokeshire coast, including Caldey Island; the Daugleddau estuary; the St Bride's Bay coast, including the coastal islands; and the Preseli Hills. However, not all of the park is coastal, and there are even forests and marshes on the edges of the park." Text Source: (visit link)
