Westdale Bay is a picturesque sandy beach situated approximately 1km west of the village of Dale. A narrow no-through road (turn left opposite church) overlooks the bay on the north side and has some (very limited) roadside parking. There is additional roadside parking and a P&D car park in the village, and access to the beach is on foot from the west side of the one-way system by the castle. From here a footpath leads across a field to the coast path, where steps descend to the shore. Dogs are allowed at all times.
The beach is backed by pebbles and red sandstone cliffs with an outlook towards Skokholm Island (about 3 miles offshore) and Grassholm Island in the far distance. It's a popular surfing beach at its best on a rising tide, but before the high tide. Strong rips can occur and it's not a beach for the inexperienced. Make sure you know where the rocks are!
