Opinions and experiences of visitors with Whiteford Sands
Turn right out of the car park and follow the signs to the beach - once off the lane, there is a sign to the right - only follow that if you want to walk along the 'marshy' side. Best to carry straight on instead and reach the beach more quickly.
You will then have a long walk along a nice, sandy beach. Go past the cast iron lighthouse until you come to sand dunes that are fairly flat. On a weekday in August, there were a lot of families along the beach and in the dunes. Once near the flatter dunes, there are very few people and, whilst I was there, no families and no children.
Whiteford Sands is really only for sunbathing as the sea can be very far out, although at high tide, it's great for paddling and cooling off in the shallows.
Whilst I was there, just two older, single men were sunbathing near me. They did wander over quite a few times and chatted, which I don't mind at all.
A pleasant experience for nude sunbathing, without swimming. The 'round trip' is a good 3-4 miles.
