Local beaches and coastline

“Wales’ first long-distance route, the Pembrokeshire Coast Path National Trail covers 299km (186 miles) of the most spectacular coastal scenery in Britain. Opened in 1970 it’s one of 15 premier long-distance National Trails in England and Wales, all waymarked by the acorn symbol.”

The BBC have a great guide to walking in Pembrokeshire.


Abereiddi is a beautiful black sand/pebble cove, framed by rugged slate cliffs. There is a great walk from Abereiddi to Porthgain, be sure to check out the blue lagoon where the Red Bull Diving Championships are held and some ruins along the way. It takes about an hour and the Sloop Inn (Porthgain) offers weary walkers a place to rest their feet.


Whitesands lives up to it’s name! The beach is long, so never feels overcrowded although the car park can get full during the summer months. Very popular with surfers and families alike. A shop and restaurant in the car park
