Naturist / Nudist Beaches in England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland

Marros - near Tenby



East of Tenby. 2km walk to the cliff top, then a good but steep trail down to a secluded sandy south facing beach.

Marros beach is located on Carmarthen Bay on the south coast of Wales, between Pendine and Amroth, near Saundersfoot.

Getting There

Satnav: SA33 4PN

From Carmarthen, follow the A40 to St Clears and then the A477. From Narberth or Tenby, take the A478 to Begelly. From the A477 several minor roads lead southward to the village of Amroth and from there on to Marros.

Alternatively, from St. Clears take the A4066 southwards via Broadwey to Pendine. At the top of the hill beyond Pendine turn left onto a minor road to reach Marros.

There is no 'official' parking in Marros. Vehicles should only be parked on grass verges and elsewhere after due consideration for local residents and other road users.

To reach the beach itself, proceed on foot along path the beside the church ( private lane - no vehicle access or parking) - the beach is 1 1/2 - 2 miles.

On foot, the beach may also be reached via the Carmarthen Coast Path from Pendine (4 miles) or from Amroth (2 miles).


The beach is secluded and quiet, clean and mostly sandy but reduces to pebbles and shingle at high tide. Naturist use is reported at the western end, beyond the rocks (about 1/2 mile from the access point). The remainder of the beach is used at times by textiles and families and a few walkers may use the beach at low tide as an alternative to the Coast Path. Use discretion. At high tide this route is cut off and access is only from the inland direction - take note of tide times before walking this stretch of beach.

At the western end of the beach - near the caves - the high tide reaches the base of the cliffs at cuts off a small bay, reachable only from the coast path. This area is also used by naturists. "The beach is used right through the season... and is proving more popular with naturists due to the seclusion it enjoys. During high season the beach is [still] very quiet.. even though other beaches in the area are very busy. This, I believe, is due to the distance required to get to the beach"

Facilities: None on the beach - of course! Go prepared.
