Whitesands Bay proudly flies the European Blue Flag and its wide expanse of fine, white sand which curves towards the remote and rocky St Davids headland has been rated as one of the best beaches in Britain by the Good Beach Guide. Interested in seeing it for yourself? Our wonderful selection of Whitesands holiday cottages will give you the easiest of access to this incredible stretch of coast.
The tiny city of St Davids - with its bishop's palace, cathedral and excellent range of amenities - is only a short drive away from this spectacular beach, and you can also squeeze in a quick round at the St Davids City Golf Club, which benefits from having Whitesands Bay as its stunning backdrop. And, whatever else you do whilst you're here, taking a boat trip from Whitesands (or the nearby St Justinian's) to Ramsey Island is an absolute must.
The beautiful Whitesands Bay is overlooked by the great Carn Llidi, a towering, dramatic, volcanic outcrop. As the endless waves pound onto the bay below, you can enjoy watching the many amateur and professional surfers who visit the beach regularly and attempt to tame its amazing breakers – or, of course, you could have a go yourself!
The section of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path that includes Whitesands, meanwhile, will take you through Iron Age fields and onto the peninsula settlement at St Davids Head - a fabulous walk!
If it's a quiet kind of holiday that you're after, chilling out on this much-loved beach with a good book and gazing out towards Ramsey Island and the sparkling Atlantic simply can't be beaten.
