Musselwick Sands

Musselwick Sands - Pembrokeshire
© Hugh Chevallier and licensed for reuse under this Licence

Located close to Marloes village on the southern edge of St Brides Bay is the lovely sandy beach of Musselwick. Backed by the high cliffs of Wooltack Point and Nab Head the north-facing beach here is relatively sheltered from the prevailing winds.

Access to Musselwick Sands requires a 10 minute walk across fields and a rather steep descent via steps cut into the cliffside. Along with the fact that the beach is really only here between mid and low tide, there are rarely ever more than a few people here at any time.

It is worth noting that there is only one way on and off the beach so check the tides before straying to far along the beach.

Completely amazing beach - isolated, great sand, and near Marloes which is a hot.
