Nestled at the end of a winding road, past traditional Welsh cottages with lime grouted slate roofs, lies Abereiddy beach. It is an attractive place with dark grey sand with pebbles and many fossils. This historical place is good for swimming, fishing, kayaking and fossil hunting in particular. Let the children get stuck into searching the sand for fossils while you take in the breathtaking view. If you visit during the autumn you can quite often see seals bobbing around the coast.
Abereiddy beach has been awarded Blue Flag status and also currently has a Green Coast Award. These two things combined mean that it is a clean and safe rural beach. Facilities at the beach include toilets and often a small ice cream van parked up, even in the rain!.
Situated a little way along the coast path is the beautiful Blue Lagoon. The rich colour of the water is set off by the surrounding slate. Abereiddy once had a thriving slate industry. The ruined buildings and old worker’s cottages can be seen just along the coastal path and the now flooded quarry is the Blue Lagoon. This amazing place is now very popular with divers who come from across the UK and beyond to experience the thrill of diving into the deep water. The depth is almost 25m and was the location of the Red Bull World Cup Cliff Diving Event in September 2012 and September 2013. Whilst coastering is popular around the lagoon the beach itself is also a good place for canoeing.
If you keep walking along the coast you will eventually arrive at the amazing Traeth Llyfn. The walk along this stretch of the coast is considered one of the best walks in the UK for sea views and bird watching. On a clear day the view stretches for miles in both directions and is awe inspiring
