A wild stretch of coastline from blue lagoon to beach

Popular with divers and coasteerers, Abereiddi's Blue Lagoon is a spectacular coastal feature. The lagoon is actually a flooded former slate quarry and you can still see atmospheric ruined quarry buildings on the clifftops.

Escape from the hustle and bustle of modern day life with a walk along the quiet and secluded Abermawr Beach, with marsh and woodlands behind. It was once selected by Brunel as a cable and railway terminus.

Then explore Abercastle, a picturesque cove and fishing village, with a sand and shingle beach. Ruined limekilns and a corn store are further signs of Pembrokeshire's industrial past.

This is a great coast to explore by kayak. Whether you’re spotting seabirds on the rocks or just towing a mackerel line, you can often see more from sea level than from the coast path - and with half the effort.

The Red Bull Cliff Diving World Championships visited the Blue Lagoon in 2012 - the first time the event had been held in the UK. We were delighted to host the event again in 2013.

 The storms in early 2014 had a major impact on our coastline. The beach head and car park at Abereiddi have changed dramatically and we ask that you follow the wooden waymarker signs for your own safety.

Take a look at our short article about how the storms have altered Abereiddi and what we are doing about it.
