Enjoy Pembrokeshire

Amroth Beach

Amroth is a Blue Flag beach and can be a great place for a summer swim, evening fishing and windsurfing.

Dog friendly?
Seasonal dog restrictions apply to the part of the beach between May-September. 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 Amroth by bike with the Celtic Trail passing through the village and right by the beach. There are bike racks at this site. The beach here is part of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path National Trail. Access to the beach is via a wheel chair friendly concrete path. By car three minor roads run down steep hills to join the sea-front road in Amroth village. It is signposted from the A477. There is free parking for approx 60 cars with further parking alongside sea wall. The rest of the sea-front has parking for disabled drivers only.

Site description
This south-facing beach is sandy with a pebble bank above the high tide line. It has a series of wooden groynes which protect the village from stormy seas. If swimming here, beware of the groynes. At extremely low tides, the stumps and trunks of an ancient submerged forest are occasionally exposed. The cliffs at the western end of the beach are unstable and should be avoided. Amroth marks the start - or the end if you're walking the other way of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, one of Britain's 17 long-distance National Trails. Ahead lie 186 miles (299 kms) of some of the finest coastline in Europe.

There are toilets including facilities for the disabled. There are telephone kiosks, shops, cafes and public houses alongside the beachfront. The beach is cleaned daily. There are litter bins which can be used for dog waste. Please help keep Amroth beautiful and use the facilities provided or take your litter home.
Pembrokeshire County Council Bathing Water Byelaws apply to the whole area off this beach. These include a speed limit. National Trust Byelaws apply to the area surrounding Amroth.

RNLI message

  • Wherever possible, always swim at a lifeguarded beach.
  • Always read and obey the safety signs, usually found at the entrance to the beach. These will help you avoid potential hazards on the beach and identify the safest areas for swimming.
  • When on a lifeguarded beach, find the red and yellow flags and always swim or bodyboard between them - this area is patrolled by lifeguards.
  • Never swim alone. If you get in trouble, stick your hand in the air and shout for help.
  • If you see someone in difficulty, never attempt a rescue. Tell a lifeguard or, if you can't see a lifeguard, call 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
