Whitesands Beach is one of Pembrokeshire’s premier surf spots, but more importantly, it is the home of Porthmawr Surf Lifesaving Club.
There has been a surf lifesaving presence at Whitesands beach since 1961. In that summer, members of St.Davids and Solva surf lifesaving clubs begin patrolling Whitesands Beach and nearby Newgale at weekends. Equipment and experience was in short supply but the ethusiasm was there.
Whitesands Beach is one of the most scenic beaches along the North Pembrokeshire Coast. The beach is superb for surfing or just the casual sunbathing session or swim. Visitors should watch out for warning signs as some parts of the beach can be dangerous for swimming. The isolated mountain of Carn Llidi creates a breathtaking backdrop to the beach and from the top stunning panoramic views across the peninsula.
Whitesands Beach has been awarded the prestigous blue flag award ever since its inception in 1987.
