Aberfelin beach near the Pembrokeshire village of Trefin is a wonderful sand and shingle beach nestled between rocky cliffs and surrounded by rock pools. Though the cliffs are considered unstable the careful family can still have lots of adventures exploring the rock pools. There is much more to rock pooling than having a quick snoop around so have a look at eco friendly kids for some tips on what to look for. Getting to the beach involves following a small path and clambering across the rocks, but in case that is not for you then there is a bench near by with spectacular views over the beach.

The ruined mill that gives the beach its name stands as a reminder of the time when Aberfelin was a small hive of activity. This little cove served the farmers and millers of Trefin and since the mill closed in 1918 it has served as inspiration to visiting welsh poets.

If you’re holidaying with a small family then Aberfelin is a special place to spend a lazy day with a fishing net. You are also only a short walk along the Wales coastal path to Porthgain where you can pick up some award winning fish and chips from The Shed. Stroll back along the cliff tops to near by Trefin and wind off your family day out with drink at the Ship Inn.

Although not suitable for swimming this little cove is a good quiet spot for wildlife watching. Seals are often seen near by and the wild cliff tops attract an array of land and sea birds.
