Abermawr beach

Abermawr beach

Abermawr is a remote rural beach with a pebble bank, backed by earthed cliffs.

Low tide exposes the golden sand and buried tree stumps – the remains of a forest drowned by a sudden flood as an ice sheet melted 8000 years ago. The stumps have been perfectly preserved by salt. Behind the beach are an interesting ruined cottage, a wildlife-rich marshy area and bluebell woods climbing the hill at the southern end.

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! Also, Preseli Venture have a live webcam looking right down to the beach so you can check the weather too before you head out!
