Abereiddy beach

Abereiddy (Abereddi) beach

Pebbles and extraordinarily dark sand made of pounded grey slate form this rural beach.

The same slate gives a brilliant deep blue colour to the water in the ‘Blue Lagoon’; a beautiful little harbour – a breached quarry – just to the north of the beach which is accessible for wheelchair and scooter users.

Be aware Abereiddy beach has strong currents. This is a popular spot for coasteering, climbing along the cliffs at sea level, leaping into the sea if you reach an impassable bit. Please enjoy coasteering as part of an organised group (search for coasteering providers here). Alongside the old quarry are a row of ruined cottages to explore.

If you’re planning to visit, check out the tide times to make sure you’ve plenty of beach to play on and that you don’t get cut off by the incoming tide!
