Details

The same slate gives a deep blue colour to the water in the "Blue Lagoon", a beautifully sited flooded slate quarry, past ruined quarry buildings and slate-workers cottages. There is good wheelchair-accessible path access to the beach and the Blue Lagoon. Popular activities here include snorkeling, diving and kayaking and children enjoy hunting for tiny fossils, known as graptolites which may be found on the beach. In keeping with the rural location, there is little in the way of services although an ice-cream and drinks van is usually located in the car park in summer months. A wide range of shops and services are available in St David's, 5 miles to the south. The Blue Lagoon and much of the coast from here to Porthgain is owned by the National Trust and forms part of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path.

A Green Coast and Seaside Award beach. Nearest Information Centre, numerous cafes, pubs and shops can all be found in St David's 5 miles away. Dogs allowed.
