Porthgain Harbour Beach - Pembrokeshire

The little picture perfect harbour village of Porthgain is one of the gems of the Pembrokeshire coast. Set in a sheltered inlet this was once a busy port where slate, brick and granite were shipped from the local quarry.

Today the main industry is tourism, and there are a number of galleries, cafes and pubs within a stone's throw of the harbour. But there are still plenty of reminders of the ports more industrial days.

At low tide there is a small sandy beach here which, being in a harbour, is very sheltered. This is a wonderful spot for kids and the kind of place where holiday memories are made.
