West Angle Bay

At the mouth of the Milford Haven Estuary, this horseshoe cove is tucked right inside West Angle Bay.

The beach is quite narrow at high tide but at low tide, it’s revealed; a huge stretch of golden sand.

The northern end of the beach has rocks perfect for climbing and if you can find it, a cut through the cliffs leads to a secret beach!

The sea off West Angle does have strong currents.

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!
