described as a ‘visual overdose of beauty’ has once again been named alongside internationally famous shorelines and taken a spot on a new top 25 best beaches list. Barafundle Bay, situated near

Stackpole Quay and managed by The National Trust, has been named alongside beaches from California to Cape Town as well as Melbourne, Rio de Janeiro, Auckland and many other spectacularly beautiful sites. It is also just one of two UK

coast’, and is compared to ‘idyllic white sands and sensuous turquoise waters of Bora Bora’. When it comes to Barafundle

brings you down to the sand. It’s been consistently voted one of Britain’s best by whomever votes on these things, and it’s easy to see why: it’s a luxuriant curve of sand, topped by dunes and grasses on hills that make it feel immensely private. “The long stretch of cliff known

as Stackpole Head sticks into the sea like an arm. A little boulder sits jauntily offshore. The waves crash against the smooth sand.” It ends: “Your company here?

12 people, four dogs, and a visual overdose of beauty.”
