Abermawr & Aberbach

[Skip to Content]
Abermawr

Abermawr and Aberbach are two neighbouring beaches on Pembrokeshire's north-west coast, situated approximately 2 miles north of Mathry, just off the A487. The beaches are separated by a small headland and flanked by low cliffs of boulder clay and mudstone. Both beaches are backed by a pebble bank, along which runs the coast path. The pebble banks have blocked off the valleys behind creating areas of marshland. Dogs are allowed at all times. Footpaths lead inland from both beaches through wooded areas and are worth a short walk.
Abermawr beach (above) is mostly sand and is a popular surfing beach. It needs a good swell to work, is best between low and mid tide and worth a try when other beaches are blown out.
Aberbach has very little sand and the rocky coast to the north is a popular venue for coasteering.

Roadside parking is available on a no-through road (signposted Abermawr), which has a turning circle at the end. Access to Abermawr is a short walk south-west along the coast path from the end of the road, and access to Aberbach is from a footpath on the right about 150 yards before the end of the lane.

There are no facilities at these beaches but nearby Tregwynt Woollen Mill has a tearoom serving teas and snacks. The photo above was taken 2 hours after low tide.
