Beach Overview

This is an attractive sandy/rocky beach in the north of Pembrokeshire, located between Porthgain and Abereiddy. The beach is surrounded by towering cliffs and provides plenty of space once the tide is out.

This beach is another that is often empty because it is not easy to get to. It is only accessible from the Coast Path and is a fairly long walk from the nearest road or car parks, however it is totally worth it.
