Lydstep Haven (known in ancient times as Lis Castell) is a village and beach holiday resort in Pembrokeshire, Wales, in the community of Manorbier. The hamlet of Lydstep is separate from Lydstep Haven, lying just to the west of the beach and caravan park resort, but the area is generally known as Lydstep Haven. It lies along the A4139 road, west by road from Tenby and Penally and west of Manorbier.

It is a notable private holiday resort and has a beach which can be reached from Manorbier. In ancient times the Kings of Dyfed and several Welsh saints have been connected with "Lis Castell"; Penally Abbey was located nearby.

The Lydstep hamlet contains the Grade I listed ruins of a "Bishop's Palace" across from the road from the Lydstep Arms. Although called a palace, it is understood to have been the hunting seat of Lord St David in the early 14th century. Cadw describe it as a medieval house containing a first-floor hall and possible parlour, and vaulted undercroft in two unequal sections, constructed of limestone masonry with slate roof. Traditionally known as the 'Place of Arms', its name perhaps became mutated to 'palace' and was probably where the manorial court of Manorbier and Penally was held.
