This beach is remote and has only a little parking near the road, but the walk is well worth it as it passes by one of several beautiful paths through woods.
There are no facilities and there is quite an undertow so be wary when bathing. Abermawr has a steep storm bank and can be spectacular in wild weather. On calmer days you can often spot seals.
Signs for this beach are from the main A487 St Davids to Fishguard road.
