Abercastle

A picturesque cove and village, with a beach of muddy sand and shingle. Facing north-west, it’s sheltered from south-westerly gales and provides a safe harbour for the local fishing fleet. In Welsh it’s known as Cwm Badau (Valley of Boats). In the past, it was a busy cargo port. Carreg Sampson, an impressive Neolithic burial chamber, lies west of the beach and a short distance inland. Abercastle is particularly popular with divers, which can lead to congestion if too many cars and trailers are trying to get to the beach.
