Sandy Haven Beach

This beach is approximately 800 metres across, facing south across Milford Haven Waterway and lies in front of low sandstone cliffs to the south west of Herbrandston. A small caravan site is also located on the cliffs above the beach. Sandy Haven Pill, which is the dominant freshwater influence to the bathing water, drains land to the north and finally flows into the tranquil Sandy Haven Estuary. The bathing water lies within the Pembrokeshire Marine Special Area of Conservation and the surrounding coast forms part of the Milford Haven Waterway Site of Special Scientific Interest. The bathing water is also located within Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, further highlighting the environmental value of the area.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use. Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
