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.

We like to think that Pembrokeshire is a green place in more ways than one, so we asked Catherine Mack to visit to check out our eco credentials.

Her award winning books have been published in 14 different languages. We caught up with her recently to see just why Pembrokeshire is so important to her.

Fancy living on your own private island? Us too! We catch up with the wonderful wardens of Ramsey Island, just off the St. Davids Peninsula to see what island life is really like.
