Pembroke Bay is a large sandy beach with central rocky outcrops that divides it into two locally recognised beaches - Pembroke and L'Ancresse. It's gentle sloping nature makes it popular for swimmers, kayakers and kite boarders. Occasionally, some boats will drop anchor in the summer sun. The Pembroke end has a narrow strip of pebble beach up against the sea wall and also around the central portion of the bay.
Small forts can be found at either headland of Pembroke Bay. L'Ancresse golf course's 15th and 16th holes run alongside the bay.
A few minutes walk to the north west of Pembroke is Jaonneuse Bay which is a small sandy beach as a high tide alternative. There a couple of small parks right next to it. Five miuntes from Pembroke car park, up and across the golf course's 17th hole, the Millennium Stone monument can be found which commands a beautiful panoramic vista across L'Ancresse common.
There are toilets and car parks at both ends of the bay. At the Pembroke/western end, there is the recently refurbished and fully licensed Beach House café and kiosk which offers everything you should need at a beach. At the eastern end you will find a more traditional kiosk that serves up the usual things and you can deckchairs etc. Buses stop a short walk from the access slipway.
