Whitesands Bay seen from the slopes of Carn Llidi
Whitesands Bay seen from the slopes of Carn Llidi
Looking south from the track up to Carn Llidi with Whitesands Bay beach prominent in the centre of the view.

The track is partially concrete-surfaced, part of a wartime road up to a defence establishment near the summit of the hill.

Carn Llidi is 181 metres (594 ft) above sea level with commanding views east over Pembrokshire. The view to the west spans 180 degrees of the Irish sea and western approaches making Carn Llidi a natural location for defensive surveillance during both world wars.

During WWI a hydrophone station was built near the summit to detect enemy submarines in the western approaches. The same site was re-used throughout WWII, first as a radio station and observation point, then later as a radar station. The concrete and brick foundations of these defence sites remain and the concrete footpaths aid access to the summit.
