Sandy Haven Beach

The beach at Sandy Haven is a large area of sand at low tide but all but disappears when the tide is high. Located on the North side of Milford Haven the beach has rock pools to explore and is backed by small cliffs.

At low tide you can cross the Sandy Haven Pill using exposed stepping stones but be careful of the tide as if you get cut off you will have a long walk back around the coast. The stones are usable a few hours either side of high tide.

All you have is a car park and slipway at the end of a narrow lane. The nearby village of Herbrandston has a small shop and you have a small campsite also sits behind the beach area.
