West Angle Bay - Pembrokeshire

West Angle Bay Beach is a small, sheltered beach close to Milford Haven.

The beach is made up of golden sand with rocky headlands at either end meaning it is protected from some of the wind. It is also something of a sun trap picking up the afternoon rays.

The beach is popular for swimming and rockpooling, or as part of a walk in the wider area. From here it is a quick walk to the dainty village of Angle which is close by.

One of the best things to do at West Angle is to look out for the ships that pass by the bay, including the Irish ferry which links Pembrokeshire and Rosslare as well as tankers travelling to Milford Haven.

West Angle Bay was also the scene of s shipwreck in 1808 when the HMS Leda ran aground.
