    Set in a sheltered cove near the north-westerly tip of Pembrokeshire is the pleasant little beach of Porthsychan. What the beach lacks in sand (it is mostly shingle and pebble) it makes up for in charm. Here you will find an abundance of rock pools and the waters within the little bay are generally quite…

    The small bay of Pwllcrochan is located on a remote stretch of the north Pembrokeshire coast. To the north the beach is overlooked by the headland of Trwyn Llwyd and there are steep cliffs to the back. None of these provide much in the way of shelter as the beach is west facing so picks…

    This small pebble cove sits at the bottom of a wooded valley. As the tide goes out, the beach becomes progressively more sandy. However, as the tide returns the beach shrinks rapidly. The name Aberbach means \"little river mouth\" and there is indeed a little river that runs down the northern side of the beach.…

It is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest along with the wider Abermawr area and is part of the pretty Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. The beach itself is set between earthy cliffs and is…
