Abereiddy Bay - Slipway Beach

Abereiddy is a sandy/shingle beach popular with tourist and residents alike, especially with coasteerers, divers and surfers. The area also provides an ideal location for bathing, kayaking and fishing. Abereiddy lies within Castell Coch Cliffs and Llanfryn Quarries Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and Trwyncastell Cliffs and the Blue Lagoon SSSI, with the bathing water itself being contained within Pembrokeshire marine Special Area of Conservation (mSAC). A large car park adjoins the beach and public toilets are open from Easter to October half-term. The beach is located within Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, which is popular with both tourists and local residents. The popular Blue Lagoon, a large disused slate quarry, now filled with seawater, is located to the north of the beach.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use. Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.

Tell us what you think about Abereiddy Bay - Slipway Beach

Pebbles and extraordinarily dark sand made of pounded grey slate form this rural beach. The same slate gives a brilliant deep blue colour to the water in the 'Blue Lagoon'. A beautiful little harbour - a breached quarry - just to the north of the beach.
