Milford Haven to Dale

A comparatively easy walk without any serious gradients but it does need careful planning to avoid a long detour, should a high tide be covering the stepping stones at Sandy Haven.  Click for tide timetables.

ROUTE

  • Start from the marina. Cross over the bridge and turn left along St Anne’s Road.
  • Keep in as straight a path as possible through Hakin.
  • Just past the school, turn left and drop down to Gelliswick Bay.
  • The path heads up the other side, past some houses and around the natural gas refinery before reaching Sandy Haven.
  • The stepping stones across Sandy Haven Pill are are only reliably dry 2½ hours either side of low tide. Get your timing wrong and you’ll face a 3½ mile detour.
  • There are some great views along the next section and the stunning Lindsway beach, especially if it’s low tide.
  • Clamber down to the beach if you have time before continuing to the rocky little beach at Monk Haven, passing some interesting buildings en-route.
  • At Musselwick, get down onto the beach at the earliest opportunity and continue along the foreshore to The Gann, a great place for birdwatching.
  • The Gann can only be crossed 3½ hours each side of low tide but the detour is only 2 miles this time!
  • Head along the pebble ridge and follow the road into Dale.
  • If in doubt, follow the acorn symbols that indicate where the route goes.
