A small seaside hamlet nestled between Amroth and Saundersfoot, Wiseman’s Bridge is connected to the surrounding areas along the Pembrokeshire Coast by a series of paths and tunnels, all of which are ideal for walking and cycling and are easily accessible for wheelchairs and disability scooters also.
Set in front of a pebble bank and made up of golden sands, Wiseman’s Bridge beach is perfect for bathing, beach games and family picnics. Due to its deep rocky edging, rock pooling here is fabulous. Rich in marine life, it’s not uncommon to discover crabs, shrimps, fish and sea anemones whilst playing around in this intriguing area.
Wiseman’s bridge is linked to nearby Saundersfoot by a series of three tunnels. These were once the railway paths for coal transfers from the local mines to the village. Whilst heading along the coast path, before reaching the first tunnel, watch out for the large cave entrances, now home to a number of protected bats.
At one time there were as many as 12 collieries working in this area. Wiseman’s Bridge’s rocky beach was used as a practice beach in 1943 for D-Day landings, performed in front of Prime Minister at the time, Sir Winston Churchill.
Wisemans Bridge Inn is a classic tradtional pub with an old bar, contemporary lounge and terrace overlooking the sandy beach. Enjoy food in a garden which goes right down to the beach. There is a wide selection of choices on the menu including fresh fish, vegetarian options with a bar snack and evening meals.
Parking is available along the beach front and with Wisemans Bridge beach being dog friendly all year round, dogs are welcome in the front garden and the old bar area.
Please note: There is a small charge for using the Wifi.
