Getting there
You can get to West Angle Bay using the Coastal Cruiser service. The beach is part of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path National Trail. There is easy access down to the beach via a slipway and an easy access grass walk north towards the Haven viewpoint. If you are travelling by car, the B4320 from Pembroke leads to Angle village, from where there are signposts to the beach. There’s a free National Park Authority car park above the beach.

Site description
West Angle Bay is a sheltered sand and rock cove at the mouth of the Milford Haven Waterway. There are interesting rock formations and rock pools to explore on either side of the beach. From the bay there are good views across to St Ann’s Head and of the shipping passing up and down the waterway.

Toilets are available next to the beach along with a seasonal cafe and there is a village shop and pub in nearby Angle village. The beach is cleaned and litter bins are provided, so please help keep West Angle Bay beautiful and either use the facilities or take your litter home.

Pembrokeshire County Council Bathing Water Byelaws apply to the whole area off this beach. PCNPA Byelaws apply to the whole of the foreshore on this beach.

Safety advice
There are strong currents out of the bay so don’t swim out too far.
