Saundersfoot is a fishing village and popular seaside resort in Pembrokeshire, attracting many visitors each year. This large, south east facing beach of golden sand is one of the most popular stretches of coastline in Pembrokeshire. Located at the foot of a picturesque wooded valley its appeal is due to the superb sandy beaches and the attractive harbour, which provide unrivalled opportunities for watersports, beach games, fishing and simply messing about in boats.
Saundersfoot is very popular with families. Being a lively tourist beach, all the expected amenities are found close to the beach. There is disabled access to the beach, with disabled toilet facilities nearby. Dog restrictions are enforced between 1 May and 30 September, and Lifeguards are on duty from the end of June to the end of September. Saundersfoot also provides easy access to Amroth where the beach is the starting point of the 186 mile Pembrokeshire Coast Path. Nearby is Colby Woodland Gardens, owned by The National Trust. The villages surrounding Saundersfoot have developed through tourism to offer a fascinating array of potters, artists, glassblowers and other attractions like Folly Farm.
The beach, harbour and pretty village of Saundersfoot are understandably popular with visitors to the area. Its origins, however, lie in the industrial history of the County. The village first developed to serve the long-gone coal mining activity when small steam trains brought the coal onto the harbour wall from where it was shipped in coastal colliers. The tunnelled headlands now form part of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. The summer months offer lots of activity and nightlife, but Saundersfoot Village should not be forgotten out of season. Mild winters and empty beaches make for a good winter break.
