Gelliswick beach

Gelliswick beach

A small shingle beach just west of Milford Haven. The road access winds its way down the hill and continues all along the shore, past the yacht club, so access couldn’t be easier.

To the east end is Hubberston Fort, built in the 1850s to defend the haven from the French; it never fired a shot in anger but was used as a training base during the First World War.

If you’re planning to visit, check out the tide times to make sure you’ve plenty of beach to play on and that you don’t get cut off by the incoming tide!
