Pwllcrochan Bay

Pwllcrochan is a remote sandy beach on the rocky north-western coast of Pembrokeshire. Access is on foot via the coastal path. There is some roadside parking at Abermawr to the south and at Pwll Deri (Grid Ref : SM893386) to the north. Abermawr is approximately 1 mile away and Pwll Deri 2 miles.

The steep path down to the beach is on the south side (from where the photo was taken). Part of the original path has been lost to erosion, and now the final 25 feet or so is a climb down the rocks. This short climb is not difficult, and there is usually a rope here to assist. The beach is mostly dark sand backed by high cliffs with the headland of Trwyn Llwyd to the north. This shelters the bay, and the beach is good for sunbathing and swimming. Care should be taken not to get cut off by the incoming tide. Due to the difficult access, it is ideal for those seeking some peace and quiet.

The name Pwllcrochan translates as 'Cauldron pool'. The photos were taken an hour after low tide.
