Abercastle is a picturesque little harbour with a small sand and shingle beach. The village stretches from a small turn in the road out along the cliff edge towards the beach where the shore line is dotted with small bustling boats. Blink and you could easily miss this charming village as you follow the Wales Coastal Path north. Pick up the path from behind the cottages that stretch out towards the sea.
The small harbour at Abercastle is still busy, serving small fishing fleets that bring in fresh fish daily to the local pubs and restaurants in near by Trefin and Porthgain. Not much has changed in appearance here since the nineteenth century when the bay served as a trading harbour for coal, slate, honey and corn. In 1867 it also became famous as the destination for Alfred Johnson, a Danish born sailor who, from America sailed single handed across the atlantic in a small dory boat named Centennial.
This area of Pembrokeshire is great for the outdoors family on a self catering holiday and Abercastle is a good place for water activities. There is plenty of fishing available and it is a very popular spot for divers. The harbour is also perfectly suited for sea kayaking and the coast along here provides plenty of hidden coves and caves to explore. If you would like to try coastering or climbing along the coast, TYF offer a range of packages from beginners to experts and these frequently start from Abercastle.
A spot of imposing history can be experienced with Carreg Samson a neolithic burial chamber overlooking the bay. It gets its name as Samson allegedly placed it there with his little finger.
