West Angle Bay Beach

West Angle Bay is a sandy beach with rock pools at low tide, the beach lies within West Angle Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).

A few interesting facts:

  • The cannon in the car park weighs 18 tonnes and was removed from the sea below Chapel Bay Fort, part of the Victorian fortifications built in the area.
  • Thorn Island was built in 1842, the first of the Victorian fortifications to be built in the area. Boat trips can be arranged.


Facilities include car parking, toilets, café, picnic area and you have a steep narrow ramp to beach (not suitable for boat launching).
