West Angle Bay #ExplorePembrokeshire

Travel along the narrow, green and wild flowered tunnelled lanes towards the mouth of the Milford Haven Estuary and you will find the beautiful horseshoe cove tucked away.

The Angle Peninsula is a fairly remote landscape often battered by strong westerly winds or on a calm sunny day it is a beautiful walking destination. Head east from the bay and the coastal path will take you by East Angle Bay, the industial side of Pembrokeshire, past the refineries and alongside the Pembroke River towards Pembroke Castle. The westerly route towards Freshwater West is far more rugged and challenging, but has some of the most spectacular views across the countryside and coast.

The narrow stretch of beach at hide tide turns into a vast expanse of golden sand revealing lots of active rockpools and striking rock formations, which extend out either side of the bay into the sea. These sheltered waters are the perfect spot if you want to swim, canoe, surf, sail or fish. Plus, there is an impressive Napoleonic fort on Thorn Island which can be seen along the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path.

PLACES TO EAT

Just above the beach you will find Wavecrest Cafe serving an array of dishes made with locally sourced Welsh produce, homemade cakes and Upton Farm icecreams. In Angle village you will also find The Hibernia Inn providing heart-warming, home-cooked food and a friendly atmosphere.
