Abereiddi is well known for the nearby Blue Lagoon, a flooded slate quarry which you will find just past the ruined quarry buildings and old slate-workers cottages. The slate gives the water its stunning deep blue colour, and it’s a popular place for coasteering, cliff diving, and other activities. The Red Bull Cliff Diving Championships have been held here several times in the past!
Abereiddi is popular for snorkelling, diving and kayaking and the beach is a good place to hunt for tiny fossils (grapolites).
The Blue Lagoon and much of the coast towards Porthgain is owned by the National Trust and is part of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path.
Walk along the coast path to nearby Traeth Llynfyn – a quiet sandy and rocky beach between Abereiddi and Porthgain. Backed by towering cliffs, it is reached by very steep metal stairs and because of its remoteness you could easily find you have the whole beach to yourself.
Car parking: Limited parking above the beach.
Toilets are open during the summer months.
Dogs are allowed on the beach but please be considerate to other beach users and remember you must always clean up after your dog.
