Pwllgwaelod Beach is a small sandy beach that is encircled by cliffs with views across the water to Fishguard Harbour. The cliffs offer some protection from the wind and at low tide there is a good stretch of sand.
The beach is also one of the starting points of a trek that stretches for three miles following the Pembrokeshire National Park Coastal Footpath which follows the coast around to Dinas Head.
The walk takes you up a steep cliff which rises to 465 feet passing plenty of pretty flora and fauna as you go. From here you can take in the views over Fishguard Bay from a different vantage point. Some of the bird species that you are likely to see in the area include chough, fulmar, and peregrine falcon.
