Amroth Beach boasts golden sands and a Blue Flag award, making it a popular destination for both visitors and locals alike. When the tide is low there’s plenty of space for beach activities, so it’s worth checking the tide times before you head out.

For those visiting with dogs, there are restrictions between 1st May & 30th September on the central and western end of the beach.

Dogs are allowed on the beach year-round, so there’s no need to worry about any seasonal restrictions if you’re planning on bringing your pooch along for a seaside holiday.
