This beach is sensational, only to
be viewed at it,s highest glory at
low tide. 
Park at lydstep headland car park,
walk to the right, follow a small path
until you come to a pembrokeshire
coast national park gate.
Descend the steps and follow the
path down, there is a rocky entrance,
but well worth it to see the beach, the cavern,s are an extra bonus.

Swanlake Bay is not an official naturist
beach, but there are some naturists
who use it.
The bay is best approached from East
Moor Farm, where the owners have
provided limited car parking with an
“Honesty Box”.
Go throu the farm and follow the
coastal path signs, the bay is
relatively isolated but it is overlooked
by the pembrokeshire coastal path. 
The rock formations to the left of the beach are a great view.

For the more adventurous holiday maker
a Maritime Leisure was provided on
South Beach.

available by Henri Salmet, the aircraft,
a Bleriot Monoplane with an open
cockpit. Obviously weather and tide
permitting, the plane would then take
off adjacent to St Catherine,s Fort and
return via a circuit of Caldey Island.

Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
