This week we've been to Lindsway Bay, a beach near St Ishmaels. We parked near St Ishmael's Sports and Social Club (SA62 3TB). There is a play park next to the sport's field. In the village there is one pub, The Brook Inn. We walked alongside the sport's field, then turned left across the crop field (stick to the path) and then left onto the Coastal Path (a right turn takes you on a lovely walk to Wenall Bay, Watch House Bay and Monkhaven instead). Continue on the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path (which has now been conveniently added to Google Maps!) until you reach the steep stone steps down to Lindsway Bay. Take a look at some photos of our walk there:
Yellow gorse flowers brighten up this coastal walk.
We found lots of mini beasts on our walk including this rolled up woodlouse (or as we call him a pennysow). We also found a large black beetle but sadly I lost the photos of him. I lost lots of photos from this walk (I thought they'd all uploaded so deleted them from the card- a rookie error!). I'm most upset about losing photos of the kids but they mainly miss the beetle!
When you reach this sign you know you've reached the steps. Check the tide times and take a look to check there is some beach left before making your way down there so you don't get cut off at high tide. It goes without saying always take care on the coastal path. There wasn't any sandy beach left by the time we got there but enough rocks for us to have an hour or two before high tide.
We had a little play by the sea and then made our way up again. We'll come back at low tide next time so the kids get to see another side to this quiet bay.
We walked back across the crop field.
We found a small millipede (note the grubby hands!). We walked back across the sport's field.
Then stopped in the park for a play before returning home.
We also stopped to smell the flowers in the pretty sensory garden in the park.
It was a stunning part of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path and a fun day out- we will be back again soon!
Hope everyone is enjoying the Easter Holidays!
