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.
Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.
Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.
Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:
|Amount paid by visitor||£11.00||£10.00|
|Tax refund from Government*||£2.75||£0.00|
|Total received by the National Trust||£13.75||£10.00|

In line with Welsh Government legislation and 'fire break' lockdown, all our places in Wales will temporarily close from 24 October to 9 November to restrict the spread of coronavirus. We urge people to follow legislation, stay home and not travel.
