Musselwick Sands

Musselwick Beach is near the village of Marloes. Access is a walk of about 400 yards along a public footpath on the north side of the Marloes - Martin's Haven road, just west of Marloes village. There is roadside parking for a few cars here. The path down is fairly steep, with steps cut into the rock on the descent to the beach. At high tide this is as far as you can get, but low tide reveals a long sandy beach stretching in both directions, backed by high cliffs of black shales and red sandstones. The northern part of the beach is only accessible for approximately one hour either side of low tide, so the best time to visit would be an hour or two before low tide, which gives plenty of time to explore.

There is only one way on and off this beach, so a close eye needs to be kept on the tide. There are no facilities here, but Marloes village has a pub (The Lobster Pot Inn), toilets, a cafe and shop.

Dogs are allowed at all times. The photos were taken an hour after low tide.
