St. Dogmaels Slipway Beach

This small beach lies next to St Dogmaels village, on the banks of the River Teifi. A number of small fishing boats are moored here.
The beach, which is a mix of sand and pebbles, looks out onto the river rather than the sea, but is a pleasant spot to stop for a picnic before setting out on one of the areas popular coastal walks.
Swimming here is dangerous because of the presence of strong river currents.
Seals, porpoises and even bottle-nosed dolphins are frequently spotted along the nearby stretch of coast. The 186-mile long Pembrokeshire Coast Path starts in St Dogmaels village, which houses the remains of a 12th century abbey, as well as having a pub, minimarket and fish and chip shop.
