Poppit Sands at the mouth of the Teifi Estuary is an extensive sandy beach backed by dunes: one of the most popular beaches in the area for swimming, beach games and water sports. There is a huge expanse of sand, so it never seems crowded. From Poppit you can start the 186 mile long Pembrokeshire Coast path which goes all the way to Amroth in the south.
Car Parking: There is a beach car park which is free most of the year but a fee is charged in the summer months.
Food: There is a beach café and nearby St Dogmaels village has pubs and a well known chip shop. St Dogmaels Abbey has its own attractive café and shop.
Toilets: There are toilets and disabled toilets near the RNLI lifeboat station.
Lifeguards are on patrol from the end of June to the beginning of September. Swimmers and water users are advised to stay at the main beach and to obey the warning flags as there are fast and unpredictable currents in the estuary.
Dogs are allowed on part of the beach - there is a ban on the western end of the beach between 1st May and 30th September.
Awards: Seaside Award (Rural).
