West Pembrokeshire, Abereiddy, near St David’s, SA62 6DT
The beach at Abereiddy is something rather different. It’s lined with colourful pebbles and low tide exposes grey-black sand made of sea pounded slate. Nearby is the picturesque Blue Lagoon, the now disused slate quarry which has been breached by the sea. The Lagoon is a nice spot to sit and watch sea kayakers heading off and the coasteering enthusiasts in action, but for a coastal treat follow the path from Abereiddy to the old ruins of Porthgain (approx. 3 miles) where you can relax on the harbour front. As you walk along the cliff-top one of Pembrokeshire’a best kept secrets Traeth Llyfn is on route, a golden sweep of sand hugging the cliff-base far below. It’s suitably remote and private but the steps down are steep with open metal treads so not suitable for small paws or the less agile.
Dog friendly all year!
