Day 048 : Whitesands Bay – Abereiddy

Today I have to do a circular walk that enables me to get back to the car. There is no public transport running on a Sunday in this area.

Back at Whitesands Bay there are already quite a few people out and about early, it is very popular with surfers and swimmers. Obviously, they did not want a Sunday lie in.

I trek out to St Davids Head overlooked by the craggy top of Carn Llidi and get some good views of Ramsey Island and Whitesands Bay.

Walking around the seaward side of Carn Llidi, the tops look like they have been pushed up into ridges, is quite rocky but not too hard going. The landscape is a bit fore-boding like no-mans land.

Following the coastline, although fairly flat, I dropped down to a few coves. One of those coves was Aber Pwll, with a pebbly beach and slate rock sides.

Abereiddy has a blue lagoon, which has been formed by an old slate quarry where a channel in the rock side has been blasted and flooded to make the lagoon. The slate gives it the blue colour. It is a popular place for coasteering where you jump from the cliffs into the water.
