Nestling cosily on the coast road between the villages of Mathry and Trefin lies the beautiful cove and village of Abercastle.
A village steeped in history, Abercastle has strong roots as a trading port and was prolific in the export of slate and agricultural produce in the 19th Century.
Cargos included grain, limestone, butter, honey, corn, and coal. All that now remains of Abercastle's industrial past are limekiln remnants and a ruined grain store.
The beach is a mixture of sand and shingle and is a very popular location for those wishing to fish, kayak and sail.
At low tide there is a quite large expanse of beach to explore, look our for periwinkles, limpets and mussels clinging to the rocks that flank both sides of the beach.
Abercastle still boasts a working harbour managed by Abercastle Boat Owners Association.
With the harbour facing north-west, it is sheltered from south-westerly gales and so provides a safe haven for the local fishing fleet.
If you wish to launch a boat from Abercastle harbour, please note that there is a charge - which helps pay for village amenities.
Situated in an isolated, yet beautiful spot, above and to the right of Abercastle beach, lies the Neolithic burial chamber of Carreg Samson.
Dating back 5,000 years, the burial chamber was built by a Neolithic tribe, who used it for over 1000 burials.
The positioning of the capstone on top of the seven upright stones has always been a mystery. Legend, however, has it that St. Samson placed the capstone in position using only his little finger!
