Pwllcrochan Bay

Pwllcrochan Bay

Pwllcrochan is a remote sandy beach on the rocky north-western coast of Pembrokeshire. Access to the beach from the coastal path is a steep path 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. The far section of the beach is only accessible around low tide, so care must be taken not to get cut off. Due to the difficult access, it is ideal for those seeking some peace and quiet.

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