Fishguard Beaches

Goodwick Sands (above) is a beach of mainly shingle, mussel shells and some coarse sand, with seaweed-strewn rocks on the lower shore. It's backed by a sea wall of boulders and the main A40 to Fishguard Harbour. Toilets and a pub are nearby, whilst a few hundred yards away, a modern building houses a cafe and a children's attraction called Ocean Lab. The recently re-opened Fishguard & Goodwick rail station (very limited service) is a 5-minute walk away. Fishguard town is a short distance to the east, and has further shops, banks and a modern leisure centre with a 25 metre pool.

One of the car parks is P&D, but there are plenty of free car parks close by.

Dog restrictions apply from 1st May to 30th September; dogs are banned from the furthest (in the photo) section of the beach, must be on leads on the next section and are allowed everywhere else.

Pwll Hir (Grid Ref : SM951396) is a small, sheltered cove of pebbles located just north of the breakwater. It falls within the boundaries of Fishguard Port, and there is no public access through the port or from the cliff path. 'Pwll Hir' translates as 'long pool'.

Lampit beach (Grid Ref : SM959374) lies on the west side of the Gwaun estuary opposite the old harbour, and is a small east-facing low-tide sandy cove backed by high cliffs. Access from the coastal path is down a good path with steep steps, or along the shore from the A487 bridge.
