Traeth Llyfn beach

Traeth Llyfn beach

Traeth Llyfn is a pretty sandy and rocky beach between Porthgain and Abereiddi.

Accessible only from the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, Traeth Llyfn is backed by towering cliffs and reached by very steep metal stairs. Once you’ve made the hair raising descent the beach provides plenty of room for ball games and kite flying as well as rock pools to explore. Remember to download our guide to rock pooling before you go.

Swimming is popular here however it’s an exposed beach with powerful waves and rip currents. There are no lifeguards on duty so be careful. Dog are welcome on this beach.

Traeth Llyfn is a very rural beach and as such there are no facilities here, so if you take a picnic or BBQ please remember to take all your rubbish home.

To get the most out of the beach, check out the tide times to make sure you’ve plenty of sand to play on and always be aware of the incoming tide!
