Whitesands Bay is situated about 2 miles west of St Davids, and is a wide sandy beach backed by low dunes and boulder clay cliffs. The headland of Trwynhwrddyn is at the north end, the other side of which is Porth Lleuog. This is a small sandy cove backed by cliffs of mudstones and siltstones, and can be accessed from the coastal path. For the more adventurous a sea cave runs through the headland and can be negotiated at low tide (as in photo below). Whitesands Bay looks out towards Ramsey Island and several smaller islets, and is overlooked by the rocky peak of Carn Llidi (595 feet high).
