This walk offers a chance to enjoy some of Pembrokeshire’s finest coastal scenery whilst exploring its industrial past.

The tiny fishing port of Porthgain used to export road stone all over the UK, while Abereiddy’s famous Blue Lagoon was once an old slate quarry. Ynys y Barri (or Barry Island) is also home to a fantastic array of wildlife.

Begin your walk under the looming brick stone hoppers by the harbour and enjoy a fabulous clifftop walk above the great quarry. Follow the old tramway inland from Abereiddy back to Porthgain and end up back in the famous Sloop Inn.
