Off the beaten track
Oct 2021 • Couples
It’s a small hike to reach this beach from either Abereiddi or Porthgain yet the effort is worth the reward. A secluded beach that is effectively a sun trap in the right weather conditions.

Tricky to get to but worth the effort
Aug 2021
This beach is a bit difficult to get to and has no parking other than on the road you came in on. Get there early, park sensibly and respectfully (not in the turning circle at the end of the road) and enjoy this quiet beach. Keep an eye on the tide times as when the tide is in - this is a stoney beach and remains so until the tide id a little way out. Once out though you will have a lovely quiet beach more or less to yourself.

Stunning revelation
Jun 2021
I didn’t know this place existed and I suspect those that know of it would like to keep it that way . Walked along the path from Porthgain and then with no warning you look down and see this beautiful beach with blue/green seas and breakers rolling in . You can reach the beach via some steps so be prepared for a walk down and then the reverse . There are no facilities here , this is a wonderful place off the beaten track so if you like your beaches with fantastic views fresh seas with breakers and not much human contact this is for you .

Stunning views and wonderful woodland walk
Jun 2021 • Family
A wonderful woodland walk behind the beach - check out the National Trust website for route details. Full of wild garlic, bluebells and many other wild flowers. The beach is pebbly and we spent an hour or two enjoying the peaceful surroundings and skimming pebbles into the sea.

Just beautiful
Aug 2020 • Family
Spent a lazy few hours here. Mainly pebble beach, easy parking on the lane. It was very quiet and the sun managed to come out for a bit for us to enjoy the sea.

On the wild side ,Get off the beaten track
Aug 2019
Abermawr and the nearby Aberbach are one of those places thats a must to visit on a wild windy day in Pembrokeshire. They are not your typical sunworshipper places more whhOOO the beauty of the place hits you when you walk along the coast path and look down onto the wild windswept beach. If you are in Pembrokeshire put on your walking boots and hike down there. Its well worth the effort.

ABERMAWR BEACH
Aug 2019
Saturday 24 August 19, My husband and I decided to stroll down to Abermawr beach, just half an hour’s walk from the woollen mill, down a leafy lane with a stream running by, it was a very pretty walk.

Abermawr is a remote rural beach with a pebble bank, backed by earthed cliffs; the views from here are stunning. Low tide exposes the golden sand and buried tree stumps – the remains of a forest drowned by a sudden flood as an ice sheet melted some 8000 years ago. The stumps have been perfectly preserved by salt.

Just before you get to Abermawr beach, there is a small cottage, which is historically important as they laid the first transatlantic communication cables from here and there is a plaque to this effect on the small unassuming white cottage.

My husband and I spent an hour hear taking wonderful photographs. We then strolled back to collect our car from the woolen mill.

This is a lovely beach to visit if you are in the area.

Great setting
Aug 2019
We visited this beach one evening to walk our dogs. The tide was out so the beach had pebbles at the top and a stretch of sand in front of the sea. We parked our car at the end of the road (marked dead end) and it was a very brief walk down to the sea. The beach was in a lovely setting, near fields, woods and cliffs. Great picnic location and easy access to the coastal path.
You can do a circular walk here by heading to Aber Bach beach and looping back round to the right (all signposted).

Lovely stretch of pebble beach. Good parking.

All pebbly so if unsteady on one's feet you take care. Plenty of dog walkers out and about. Life guards around.

Stunning Easter sunset, Wales showing off
Apr 2019 • Family
I cant believe someone rated this 2/5 - granted we had the most amazing weather and sunset that day but its not a commercial beach with shops and toilets etc,

Myself and 3 other families decided to visit this beach on Easter bank holiday Monday due to a recommendation.
At the end of a quiet country lane, with ample parking along the way (yes you may have to walk a few minutes) we reached the top of the most beautiful and sparsely populated beach... We were so surprised as we had been to Whitesands the day before and whilst not heaving, was busy...
The tide was out to reveal a dark sandy beach where dogs and kids ran and played... We made our way down and spent the day skimming stones, dipping our feet in the cold ocean and watching the suns set.
We had a BBQ on the grass whilst the kids played and the tide came in to hide the sandy beach totally but still the kids and dogs played happily till the sun eventually disappeared...We walked the 5 mins back to the cars and went home with beautiful memories, full bellies and we will be back.
There is no toilet or shop but it is a stunning place!
