Pembrokeshire, West Angle Beach.

West Angle beach at low tide.

West Angle is as far as you can go west from Pembroke, follow the B4320 and go through the village of Angle, the beach is signposted with a brown information sign. At the end of the road there is a car park, a café which is open during the holiday season, and toilets. The beach is shallow and sandy with rock fringes and has rock-pools for the children to investigate.
Fishing from the rocks at low tide with plugs or spinners will sometimes get a bass and bottom fishing at higher tides will provide sport with dogfish and flatfish with bass and pollack a possibility.

At high tide the water reaches the shale and stone beach.Lugworm can be dug at low tide but it will be hard work, a flat tined potato fork is the best tool for the job. Bait, including ragworm, can be bought from Pembroke Angling in Meyrick Street in Pembroke Dock ( look for the shop painted tangerine !). The beach faces direct out onto the Atlantic so it will be rough here in a westerly blow
