Porthgain to Abereiddy Trek

Porthgain to Abereiddi Walk is a 7.1 kilometer out and back trail located near Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, Wales that offers the chance to see wildlife and get some stunning views.

Starting in Porthgain, walk along the south side of Porthgain Harbour below the brick hoppers. To reach the coast path, climb some steps next to a white building. Take time to explore the granite quarry workings.

At a sharp left bend in the path at a field corner, the tower above Abereiddi comes into view. Continue on the coast path along a section of very dramatic, high cliffs.

Steps from here lead down to the tiny beach at Traeth Llyfn. Secluded and remote, the shore is completely covered by the highest tides. There can also be nasty rip currents so it’s not good for swimming, just paddling and sandcastle building.

The coast path continues over open grassland to Abereiddi. Great care should be taken as you approach the Blue Lagoon. The views are spectacular but the cliff edge is sudden. The Blue Lagoon is a great place for diving and coasteering. The path skirts along the cliffs before zig-zagging down towards Abereiddi beach. Catch the Strumble Shuttle bus to Porthgain, St David’s or Fishguard, or continue walking inland for a circular route back to your start point.

A stunning day out. If you want to learn about navigation or being a self contained walker get in touch with me on 07534 387152 and I’ll help you or get in touch below;

I am a passionate adventurer, loving being in the mountains walking, climbing, scrambling as much as I love being under the water exploring shipwrecks, mines and caverns, or in search of treasure in the depths. In addition I hand dive for Scallops and Sea urchins.
