A Little About Porthgain...

Porthgain is a thriving, if tiny, coastal village, made up mostly of a community of fishermen, an artist's gallery, a picturesque pub with excellent beer plus first class bar food and an excellent restaurant. The harbour is sandy-bottomed, and one of Pembrokeshire's finest beaches lies just over the headland at Traethllyfn-owned by the National Trust and enclosed by high cliffs with steps to the sand. 

A little further afield is the beautiful Whitesands beach, a favourite with surfers and the tiny historical City of St Davids, with it’s stunning Cathedral, quirky shops and pubs/restaurants that are all well worth a visit.

Porthgain offers a fabulous spot to watch glorious sunsets in the evenings and fishermen landing their catch in the morning.
Alternatively, Aberfelin Beach lies in one direction along the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path and Abereiddy in the other. Both of these beaches will capture your heart.

Porthgain lends itself as an ideal romantic retreat for couples or picturesque getaway for friends and families to enjoy.

Part of the beach can get cut off at high tide too, so watch out. To find it drive to either Porthgain and take the Coastal Path to the beach, or alternatively you can park at Abereiddy and take the 1 km walk along the Coast Path to Traethllyfn. Approx. 124 steep metal steps lead down to beach.
