Sandy Haven

Sandy Haven is a tiny remote beach about 6km (3.5 miles) west of Milford Haven, popular with boating enthusiasts. In fact, there are beaches either side of Sandy Haven Pill, a small inlet near the mouth of the Haven. It is possible to walk across the Pill at low tide but be careful not to be cut off.

Sandy Haven is on the Dale Peninsular and can be reached from Milford Haven by following signs to Herbrandston.

If reached from the east, Herbrandston, there is a substantial car park just above the beach, maintained by Herbrandston Community Council. The pictures below were taken after approaching the Pill from a westerly direction, St Ishmael's, and there is no parking available.

Sandy Haven beach is on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path (see link below) but diversions are signposted when high tide makes the footbridge impassable.
