About Freshwater West

Most consistent spot in Wales and site of the Welsh nationals. Average beachbreak in north of the bay that holds plenty of size. Fast, hollow sandbar waves at low tide in front of the Furzenip rocks in the middle and reef/beach options to the south.

Access is restricted to the south; MOD firing range so do not jump the fence. No shooting at w/e's, public holidays and one week a month Nov-April, so access is possible, if you paddle. Rips can be bad, strong N-S current on drop. Quicksand at low tide at N end, uneven rock patches in middle and weaverfish are hazards. Roadside and three small parking areas.
