Little Haven beach

Little Haven beach

A small sandy and rocky inlet with sand available at both high and low tide. It is a popular spot for boat users as the beach has a slipway.

There’s a pushchair/wheelchair accessible path leading up to The Point, a handy viewpoint. You can clamber down the steep path onto another pebble beach called ‘The Sheep Wash’, used by local farmers, 50 years ago, for washing sheep before shearing. It’s now a popular, sheltered, safe swimming cove.

At half tide, it’s possible to walk around the headland into a wide sandy bay called The Settlands. At low tide, you can walk all the way to Broad Haven along the beach but watch the tide.

There are plenty of rock pools to explore – lookout for starfish but don’t disturb them. The stream fans out across the beach making it a bit damp for playing & sandcastles.

The village hosts the RNLI inshore lifeboat station and shops for the area.

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!
