A little known, but large and impressive bay with a large pebble bank created by a huge storm in 1859. At low tide the beach is sandy and offers good conditions for kiting. Surfing here can also be good and is never crowded, but the strong currents can be hazardous.

I have never windsurfed here nor know of people doing so, but I see no reason why it shouldn't be good. Facing west, southerly and northerly winds will be cross-shore and the headlands aren't too high so they shouldn't be too gusty.

The beach of Abermawr is well signposted from the crossroads on the A487 about a mile north east of Mathry. The road is narrow, and parking very limited. There is a short path to the beach from the roadside.
