Broad Haven South is a beach located 1 mile south east of the village of Bosherston on the edge of the Stackpole Estate in South Pembrokeshire in Wales. It is one of Pembrokeshire's finest beaches in terms of the water quality, its south-facing location and dramatic cliff views backed by sand dunes and expansive National Trust woodland and Lily Ponds which are located behind the beach.

The beach is popular with tourists and locals all year round. There is a camp site near the beach at Trevallen Farm and the nearby village of Bosherston has a traditional country pub and a small café serving cream teas and ice-cream during the summer months.

The beach is inside the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and is owned by the National Trust which charge for car parking at the beach between March and October. It is free to park after 5.30pm.

Facilities at the beach include toilets, emergency telephone and during the summer an ice-cream van is parked on the cliff top.

Broad Haven South is known for Church Rock which protrudes from the water around 150 yards from the shore. It is also a popular location for surfers and bodyboarding.
