Abercastle Beach

Visit Abercastle Beach

Abercastle Beach on the North Pembrokeshire Coast is a great spot to visit. Also known as Cwm Badau or Bay of Boats, this sheltered harbour was once a busy trading hub. Today most of the boats are for pleasure and you will see them dotted along the narrow natural harbour. The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path wraps its way around the beach along the cliffs.

Abercastle beach is ideal for Kayaking, fishing and sailing, with the harbour managed by the Abercastle Boat Owners Association.

A little further along the cliffs is Carreg Samson a 5,000 year old Neolithic burial chamber which overlooks the harbour.

There are a number of cottages in the and some holiday accomodation, and just behind the beach is a beautiful woodland and campsite.
