West Wales Walks – Whitesands

Whitesands, Pembrokeshire

A Winter Wonder – Porth Mawr (Big harbour) – Whitesands.

The award-winning Blue Flag surfing beach at Whitesands is one of the most famous in Wales and, by Pembrokeshire standards, can get quite busy in the summer. There are seasonal car park charges and it can often be popular enough to use the two overflow parking fields.
