Miles from Bluestone: 28
A little further afield but definitely worth the journey for the water sport fanatics among our guests. Whitesands is overlooked by the hill of Carn Llidi. The wide expanse of fine white sand curves towards the remote rocky headland of St Davids Head. This is one of the best surfing beaches in the country and therefore very popular.
The surf ‘break’ is at the northern end and on busy days there are canoeists, surfers and body boarders competing for the best waves. At the quieter south end, there are some nicely sheltered bays. Looking west towards the rugged archipelago known as the Bishops and Clerks, it is in a beautiful location and, with parking for 60 cars, public toilets, a cafe and summer lifeguard patrols, is well-equipped for all manner of seaside experiences and activities.
