The Marloes Peninsula offers dramatic coastal scenery and island views.

The Deer Park, at its tip, is separated from Midland Island and Skomer by the fierce currents of Jack Sound. The geology is spectacular, including both sandstones and volcanic rocks with folds, faults and jagged stacks making Marloes one of Pembrokeshire’s finest beaches.

An Iron Age fort overlooks Marloes Sands, which you may have spotted with some added CGI in Snow White and The Huntsman, filmed on Marloes in 2011.

Walks for all abilities start from the National Trust car parks at Marloes Sands and Martins Haven, but the most special is the walk around the peninsula. Look out for seabirds and seals. Additionally, Marloes Mere is a bird watching hotspot, attracting a large number of waterfowl in winter amongst a wide variety of other sea birds.
