A Pembrokeshire beach has been named one of the best in the world, according to TripAdvisor.

Saundersfoot Beach was named the third most sustainable beach on the planet in a survey of the website's users, behind only Sandbanks Beach in Dorset and Radhangar Beach on India's Havelock Island.

Measured by a combination of inputs from sustainable data partner BeCause (via the Blue Flag program) and TripAdvisor traveller reviews, winners stand out for their commitments to sustainability including sustainable transport options, waste disposal and water quality.
