Bathing Water in Pembrokeshire

Pembrokeshire has some of the best beaches in Britain with numerous awards such as Blue Flag, Green Coast and Seaside.

Bathing waters are monitored and assessed for compliance under the Bathing Water Directive (2006/EEC). Further information can be found on Natural Resources Wales website on the Bathing Water page. 

The beaches in Wales are designated by the Welsh Government depending on their popularity and usage. Beaches which are designated as bathing waters are sampled and monitored by National Resources Wales. For the latest Bathing Water ratings from Natural Resources Wales, please visit Bathing Water Data Explorer

Pembrokeshire beaches have exceptional good water quality, as is evident by the number of awards granted to the county's beaches. To maintain and improve the standards a collaborative approach with all the agencies involved in water quality working together. 

The Pembrokeshire Community Bathing Water Project runs between July and August collecting Bathing Water samples on a weekly basis in conjunction with local communities. We have sampled the following bathing waters which are non-designated. This will be updated throughout the Bathing Water Project and the results are only representative of the water quality at the time it was sampled.
