The breathtaking views from the cliff top inspire you to keep walking towards this remote and quiet beach. With impressive waves and golden sand Traeth Llyfn is a beach where you can enjoy spending time with the family whilst on holiday in the Pembrokeshire National Park. There are no facilities at the beach itself but there are toilets and refreshments (available from an Ice Cream van) in nearby Abereiddy. You can also park there and join the Wales Coastal path past the workers’ cottages to arrive at Traeth Llyfn. You can reach the beach by bike on the Celtic Trail. If you are on a walking holiday in North Pembrokeshire then you could arrive at Abereiddy by the Strumble Shuttle. Access to the beach is by way of some steel steps so unfortunately it is not suitable for wheelchairs and push chairs.
Traeth Llyfn is a west facing expansive beach where the tide retreats far back to the horizon leaving a fine stretch of golden sand. The beach is often very quiet so take advantage of the space, get stuck in and make some large sand sculptures and castles. The sea here can be quite rough with strong currents and undertows so swimming is only advised if you are a very strong swimmer. There are plenty of rocks to explore on this west facing beach, they stretch in broken rows across the sand, many have good rock pools so remember to pack the pooling net.
The tide comes in at different times across Traeth Llyfn so do take care not to get stranded on some rocks. This is a good Pembrokeshire beach to fly a kite on and you can often see a good variety being flown, so have a look at this website and create your own.
