  • A unique experience. I'd never seen a hat wedged between the rocks overlooking the sea. By the way in one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in south Wales, with bell towers and rock arches. There is parking a few steps away. The narrow road to get there has several wides. In a five-minute walk you descend into this wonder. Must!

  • We called here yesterday a group of 21 made up of parents and children. We spent around 26 seconds looking at the chapel and a couple of hours climbing on and over the huge rocks and exploring the caves. Its a very rugged piece of coastline and the kids and Dads loved it. Some of the mothers seemed a little worried about how long we'd disappeared with their children for.
  • What an amazing little chapel tucked into the rocks. Goodness knows how this was built and the legend that surrounds it is intriguing. Situated within an MOD active range, it is not always accessible however, is either a short walk from the car park or better still a brisk walk from Barafundle Bay. Steps down to it, so not for the faint hearted.
