Freshwater West Beach
South Pembrokeshire, Castlemartin, near Pembroke, SA71 5HW
‘Fresh West’ is in a natural unspoiled location backed by high sheltered sand dunes and fields. It’s famed for being wild and windy, especially in the winter months and is popular for water-sports, in-particular surfing. It’s also a favourite for dogs and their owners and has the added benefit of a freshwater stream for dogs to drink from. Coast path walking in this area is at its best, and if you fancy the 9 mile trek to West Angle Bay then you will be rewarded with spectacular views, but it’s a real roller-coaster of a route!
IMPORTANT: Please be aware that the beach lies adjacent to a MOD live firing range at Castlemartin.
Dog friendly all year!
