Top 5 Pembrokeshire Beaches: Top 5 Best Pembrokeshire Beaches - Walk Wild (mattwalkwild.com) - "With its jutting cliffs, azure water, and golden beaches, Whitesands is like no beach I’ve ever seen. It’s located on St David’s Head, set against the backdrop of the 181m Carn Llidi, in a part of the coast that is so far removed from anywhere that it’s hard to believe you’re still in the UK."

A brand new shower block opened in August 2020: showers (five with tokens), an outdoor shower, 6 toilets (male, female and disabled/family).  The site has electric hook-ups, and water taps dotted about the place.

Farm fields are open in July and August 2021: there’s plenty of room in the fields (13 acres) for a game of football or cricket; at the Beach Car Park you can book surf lessons and hire equipment, including windbreaks and recliners.

The “Coaster” bus travels to St David’s every half hour during the summer months (May to September); and the beach is manned by RNLI Lifeguards over the same period.

An ice cream hut and a cafe are open for the camping season.

We accept dogs and well behaved owners on site.  Pembrokeshire Coast National Park imposes a dog ban on Whitesands Beach between 1st May and 30th September.  There is no ban on the coast path, or the nearby beaches of Porthsele or Porth Melgan.
