A complete guide to every beach and cove around the coast of Wales. Information and photos of almost 500 beaches. An essential guide.
Amroth Beach

Amroth is a wide sandy beach on the Pembrokeshire / Carmarthenshire border and the start of the Pembrokeshire section of the Wales Coastal Path. The beach usually attains the Blue Flag award, and is mostly sand backed by a storm bank of pebbles and a sea wall. Two small streams emerge onto the beach - the stream at the eastern end being the county border. At either end of the beach, the cliffs are made up of mudstones, sandstones and coal measures, and are unstable - keep a safe distance. The remains of a submerged forest are visible at low tide. It's generally a safe beach for swimming and water sports and there are two slipways, but jet skis are banned from launching. The road runs along the seafront and there is plenty of parking on the pebbly verge in adddition to two small, free car parks.

Access to the beach is either down one of the slipways, or a walk across the pebbles. During low tide it is possible to walk to the neighbouring beaches of Wisemans Bridge, Telpyn and Marros. Access to or from the coastal path is possible just before Telpyn Point (the point in the middle distance above). The eastern end of the beach has large wooden groynes which provide sheltered areas for sunbathing.

Facilities at the western end of the beach include toilets ♿, a cafe and beach shop. Further toilets and a pub can be found towards the eastern end. Lifeguards patrol during the school summer holidays (10.00 to 18.00). Dog restrictions apply from 1st May to 30th September. The restricted area runs approximately from the Amroth Arms pub to 100 yards beyond the toilets at the eastern end of the beach.

Amroth often suffers during winter storms, and at one time there were houses on both sides of the road in the photo above.
