Abereiddy Bay - Slipway Beach

Abereiddy is a sandy/shingle beach popular with tourist and residents alike, especially with coasteerers, divers and surfers. The area also provides an ideal location for bathing, kayaking and fishing. Abereiddy lies within Castell Coch Cliffs and Llanfryn Quarries Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and Trwyncastell Cliffs and the Blue Lagoon SSSI, with the bathing water itself being contained within Pembrokeshire marine Special Area of Conservation (mSAC). A large car park adjoins the beach and public toilets are open from Easter to October half-term. The beach is located within Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, which is popular with both tourists and local residents. The popular Blue Lagoon, a large disused slate quarry, now filled with seawater, is located to the north of the beach.

Tell us what you think about Abereiddy Bay - Slipway Beach

Pebbles and extraordinarily dark sand made of pounded grey slate form this rural beach. The same slate gives a brilliant deep blue colour to the water in the 'Blue Lagoon'. A beautiful little harbour - a breached quarry - just to the north of the beach.
