More Information...

About half a mile to the south of Barafundle Bay, on the far side of Stackpole Head, is Mowingword Bay. Relatively unheard of compared to its much vaunted neighbour the beach here rivals any in Wales. As well as a good stretch of golden sand (at low tide) Mowingword is home to a variety of fantastical rock formations. There are cathedral-sized walk-through caves, a huge blow hole, plenty of rockpools and the iconic Pinnacle Stack in the centre of the beach. Stunning as the beach at Mowingword might be you will often find it empty, and there is a reason for this - it is somewhat challenging to get to without a boat. It is possible to swim and scramble round from neighbouring Box Bay but this is only recommended for competent swimmers.
