Abermawr beach is arguably one of Pembrokeshire’s most breathtaking beaches. Secluded, remote and incredibly peaceful it is certainly worth a visit, at sunset an orange glow fills the entire sky all the way to the horizon. The beach is famed for its pebbles, take a walk along the shoreline and you won’t be able to resist a collection of beautiful stones full of whirling colourful patterns. There is sand at the beach only at very low tide.

There is only a small amount of parking available on a verge by the beach but the local strumble shuttle bus goes within half a mile’s walk of the beach. Why not pick up some fish and chips in Goodwick and head out to watch the sunset on your weekend away. Even on a stormy day Abermawr is a great place to go but why not also pay a visit to the famed Melin Tregwynt woolen mill. Grab a traditional welsh blanket to snuggle under while you look out at the sea and be amazed at the power of the waves crashing against the pebbles.

The deep coloured waters hint to Abermawr being a historical place. During the mid nineteenth century Brunel considered Abermawr as a possible location for a harbour and railway connection to England but eventually chose Neyland instead. There is also a discreet little building recalling its days as a telegraph station and at very low tide you can see the stumps of a forgotten forest, allegedly here before 6000BC.

There is still a small woodland near by with windswept trees and a carpet of bluebells during late spring. Both the woodland and the beach are under the care of the national trust and are protected accordingly, a walk through the woods and up to the hill top village of Mathry will definitely work up an appetite. The Farmers Arms is a popular place to eat in this traditional welsh village
