It's a lovely walk to Aber Rhigian from the A487. There is roadside parking on the verge at Grid Ref : SN039389. From here a narrow track with steep hedgebanks rich in wildflowers leads for about 200 yards to a junction where you turn left along a similar track for another 200 yards. Immediately before the gates to a house the path turns right into an area of ancient woodland, closely following a lively stream as it cascades down over rocks and boulders on its way to the sea. Here a pool has formed behind the shingle. Alternative access to Aber Rhigian is along the coast path from Newport.
The beach consists of some dark sand bordered by rocks and cliffs, backed by a pebble bank which carries the coastal path.
It's a very sheltered beach, and popular for swimming, snorkelling, kayaking and sunbathing.
