Amroth Beach, with its golden sands and its Blue Flag status, sits at the start/end of the 186 mile Pembrokeshire coastal path.
As the tide goes out, you are presented with a vast expanse of sand, perfect for beach games. Amroth Beach has many rock pools at the western end and plenty of facilities in its charming little seafront village. This is an ideal family beach and somewhat of a hidden gem!
Facilities include a large Pay and Display Car Park, which also accepts Pay-by-Phone. There are also a few free parking spots along the front. There is also a maintained toilet/disabled toilet facility, a beach attendant during the summer, a shop, a chip shop, an ice cream kiosk, the famous Pirate Cafe, and several pubs selling food.
The beach is significantly reduced when the tide comes back in, leaving pebble above the shoreline. The Pebbles on Amroth beach are perfect balancing stones, and you see many artistically stacked along the front.
There is a lifeguard from the beginning of July to the end of September.
Dog restrictions apply to the central and western end of the beach between 1st May & 30th September.
Amroth beach stretches the entire length of the village, and at extreme low tide, a petrified forest, destroyed when sea levels rose 7,000 years ago, can still be seen. Fossilised antlers, nuts and animal bones and Neolithic flints have been discovered.
The parish, which appeared as Amrath on a 1578 parish map of Pembrokeshire, was a vital anthracite coal mining site until the end of the 19th century. Remains of the mines and tramways are still visible to this day.
