The Blue Lagoon, Abereiddi & Porthgain

The Blue Lagoon

A ‘must’ see. The Blue Lagoon, at Abereiddi, so called due to the colour of the water coming from the mined slate at the bottom of the lagoon. Take a walk up to the top and if you’re feeling fit then enjoy a few hours Coasteering, where you literally walk & swim right at the waters edge. An exhilarating way to see a new perspective on the Pembrokeshire Coast

Abereiddi Beach

Park at the car park at Abereiddi Beach and walk up the well worn path over to the Blue Lagoon, you can enjoy a swim or just sit and watch all the crazy fools (I did it when I was younger, but I am sensible now!!) jumping off the slate diving platforms (always do this with a reputable company).

We recommend Celtic Quest Coasteering, and Cleopatra Browne is your girl-a great set up!

The Red Bull Cliff Diving takes place here too, and tickets sell out fast.

The Old Slate Mine

Walking back you can enjoy the story of the history of the old slate mine and see the quarrymens’ cottages-called ‘The Street’. The coal from here used to be sent to Buckingham Palace for their fires back in Queen Victoria’s day. It was closed in the late 1800s

From the Blue Lagoon at Abereiddi,  you can make your way by foot across the fields or by car towards the next village Porthgain, another old quarry village with magnificent red brick buildings from its’ days as a quarry.


Backdrop for the film ‘Their Finest’ this is a village not to be missed with a

harbour and great places to eat-The Shed, The Sloop-both very famous in their own right. There are also some great galleries here for you to while away soe time and fall in love with the place. It will make you want to find ‘Their Finest’ on Netflix once you get back!
