St Brides (Welsh: Sain Ffraid) is a small coastal village in Pembrokeshire, West Wales. It lies at the south of St Brides Bay, about one and a half miles north of the larger village of Marloes with which it forms the Marloes and St. Brides community council.

The village lies within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and is on the route of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path.

Buildings include a small Norman parish church and St Bride's Castle, a 19th-century baronial-style country house which later became a sanatorium called Kensington Hospital and has now been converted into holiday accommodation. The castle underwent extensive renovation by current owners the Holiday Property Bond. The latter is a grade II* listed building [1]

Scouting in Pembrokeshire have a campsite in the village; it is used by Scouting and Girl Guiding groups both locally and nationally.
