Freshwater East is a village in Pembrokeshire, south-west Wales. The majority of the village is located on the cliff overlooking the bay. It is about 2 miles south of Lamphey and 7 miles from Pembroke by road. In the valley there is a holiday park called Trewent Park (grid reference SS016984).[1]

There are few services in Freshwater East apart from an inn and a twice daily bus service[2] to Pembroke and the surrounding villages.

Its best-known natives are the Welsh indie band Gorky's Zygotic Mynci, whose founder members grew up in the town.

Freshwater East is the site of a Green Coast Award Beach. [3]


The beach also is host to The Big Draw - art drawn on the beach along with natural items.
