Broad Haven boasts a marvellous beach which has been a favourite with bathers since the early 1800’s. Shielded by impressive cliffs on either side, the northern end of this long, splendid beach has striking geological features, including natural rock arches.
Broad Haven village is at sea level, which ensures long and unspoilt views of the bay and off-shore islands.
The community is well looked after, with local shops and pubs/restaurants. For the more adventurous of visitors, Haven Water Sports is certainly worth a visit. A family owned and run business where everything water sport related is available to buy, and also where tuition equipment is available for hire.
When it comes to great food and fine ale, there’s no better choices than either The Galleon Inn, which stands on the promenade overlooking the beach or The Ocean Cafe, Bar and Restaurant overlooking the beach.
With its close proximity to the large nearby town of Haverfordwest and all of its amenities, Broad Haven really is an ideal seaside location for a fabulously traditional British holiday.
Broad Haven (west) is a large, magnificent area of sand, which runs the entire length of Broad Haven Village and is a regular Blue Flag award winner. It is a favourite with both bathers and water sports enthusiasts and is ideally facilitated with pubs, shops, restaurant, cafe etc.
Broad Haven's westerly facing sands offer excellent conditions for kite-surfing, kite-buggying, walking and sandcastle building.
It’s not hard to see why this beach is one of the most popular windsurfing beaches in this area and home to Haven Sports water sports shop. There is a car park at the southern end of the beach opposite Haven Sports and a larger car park a small distance from the beach at the North End of the bay.
Druidstone Haven can be found by following the winding coastal road between Nolton Haven and Broad Haven. It is a well hidden, long and sandy beach, enclosed on three sides by spectacular cliffs. Access to the beach is by two fairly steep footpaths. There are no amenities on the beach, but the nearby Druidstone Hotel has a good menu and a lovely outdoor seating area, providing the most glorious views of the beach and as far out to sea as the eye can see. There is only limited parking on the side of the coastal road, but it is also possible to stop here on the Puffin Shuttle Bus.
The Ocean Cafe, Bar and Restaurant is in a great location overlooking the seaside at Broad Haven. If you're wanting food with a view, this restaurant is most certainly the one for you!
Dogs must be well behaved, and are not allowed in the restaurant area.
The Druidstone is set on a tranquil seafront spot, with big windows looking out across St Bride's Bay and an 8-minute walk from the beach. As well a the main room, there are tables in the bar downstairs, or outside on a terrace overlooking the sea. The chef sources local ingredients, Welsh lamb, fresh sea bass and other fish and mixes traditional and global recipes. Every Tuesdays there's a themed buffet ‘feast' – Indian, Moroccan, Mexican, or wherever has caught the chefs fancy.
The restaurant has been in the Good Food Guide consistently since 1974. The food is genuinely home-made, using fresh ingredients from local suppliers
