Traeth Llyfn is a wonderful remote beach that is great for relaxing and perfect for beach games when the tide goes out.

Dog friendly?
Dogs are allowed year round. There is a responsibility for dog owners to clean up after their dogs on the whole of this site.

Getting there
You can get to Abereiddi by bike, with the Celtic Trail passing within two miles. The beach is part of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path National Trail. You can park at Abereiddi and take a pleasant 0.6 mile (1km) walk along the cliff-tops to Traeth Llyfn where steps lead to the beach. Please take care. If you are arriving by car, follow the signs from Croesgoch on the St Davids-Fishguard road (A487), or from the narrow coast road between St Davids and Llanrhian. There is limited parking. You can also get to Abereiddi by the Strumble Shuttle service and then walk to Traeth Llyfn.

Site description
An impressive west-facing sandy beach backed by equally impressive cliffs. There are plenty of rock pools for exploring, however parts of the beach get cut off before high tide, so take care. The cliffs are unstable, so don’t sit beneath them.

There are no facilities at the beach, with the nearest being at Abereiddi. Please help keep this remote beach beautiful and take all of your litter home.

Pembrokeshire County Council Bathing Water Byelaws apply to the whole area off this beach. These include a speed limit. PCNPA Byelaws apply to the whole of the foreshore on this beach. National Trust Byelaws apply to the area surrounding Traeth Llyfn where the beach and cliff head is owned by them.
