Musselwick Sands

Musselwick Sands

Musselwick Beach is located on the southern side of St Brides Bay near to the village of Marloes. Some space for roadside parking is available on the north side of the Marloes - Martin's Haven road, about 400 yards west of Marloes village. From here a public footpath leads to the coastal path, thence continuing down to the shore. Final access to Musselwick is a fairly steep path, with steps cut into the rock. 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 mudstones to the west and red sandstones to the east. Be aware of the state of the tide if visiting this beach, as both ends can be cut off by the tide - the eastern half of the beach only being accessible for approximately one hour either side of low tide. The best time to visit would be an hour or two before low tide which allows time to explore.

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.
