Whitesands Bay is stunning. A huge expanse of sand, with rocks at either end and overlooked by the craggy hill of Carn Llidi in the distance. Come to stroll, make sandcastles, fly a kite, watch the gulls, or surf. Walk north to St David’s Head, or south toward St Justinian lifeboat station.
Local websites suggest that an ancient forest can be revealed at very low tides and that the remains of animals, including the (presumably fossilised) skull of the extinct auroch, a type of cattle, have been found. The bay also has associations with St Patrick - see St David's Head for a bit about this.
Whitesands is in Pembrokeshire National Park – check out the Visit Pembrokeshire website for more information. There’s a car park (fee paying), café and loos. It’s about 2½ miles from St Davids, Britain’s smallest city, off the A487 and at the end of the B4583.
