stunning secret beach only opens to visitors once a month for a very surprising reason

THIS exclusive beach is the perfect escape – but it's only open once a MONTH for a very surprising reason.

Frainslake Beach appears to be an ideal holiday location on the Pembrokeshire Coast, with golden sands and crystal clear waters, but it's actually a military tank range.

It's part of the Castlemartin firing range owned by the Ministry of Defence and is usually closed but the MoD will now invite members of the public to visit it monthly.

A spokesman said: "Costing just £6, walkers get access to a number of interesting geological features including sea stacks, rock arches and a blowhole, as well as the two inaccessible beaches of Frainslake and Bluckspool."

The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park authority runs a guided walk along the section between Stack Rocks and Frainslake.

The beach will also be accessible to surfers and fishermen but they too will need permission and attend a mandatory safety briefing to ensure no one disturbs the 120mm shells.

In 2017, two soldiers were killed at the site after a tank exploded during a training exercise.

Corporal Matthew Hatfield and Darren Neilson were part of the Royal Tank Regiment, their deaths serve as a warning to members of the public to take safety training seriously and follow the rules in place.

A replica German underground defence chamber that was used to train troops for the D-Day landings still remains nearby today.
