Amroth Bay


Location Guide

This is a south-facing beach which is sandy with a pebble bank above the high tide line, runs the whole length of the village.

It has a series of wooden groynes which protect the village from stormy seas. If swimming in this beach, beware of the groynes.

At extremely low tides, the stumps and trunks of an ancient submerged forest destroyed when sea levels rose 7000 years ago, are occasionally exposed.

The cliffs at the western end of the beach are unstable and should be avoided.

Ruins of a castle still remain and one mile inland is the Anglican parish church. Until the end of the 19th century the parish was an anthracite mining area, slight remains of mines and tramways are still visible.

Amroth marks the start - or the end if youíre walking the other way - of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, one of Britainís 17 long-distance National Trails. Ahead lies 186 miles (299kms) of some of the finest coastline in Europe.
