A wild and isolated stretch of coastline with a dramatic “Witches’ Cauldron”.
The coast around Ceibwr is lonely and wild, probably more so than on any other stretch of the Pembrokeshire coast. The cliffs in Ceibwr Bay are spectacularly contorted and folded by earth movements in the Caledonian era, about 450 million years ago (the beach is unsuitable for bathing).
Jagged rocks, caves, blowholes, unreachable small shingly beaches and arches make up the coastline.
Pwll-y-Wrach (The Witches Cauldron), a cave whose roof has collapsed, is an overwhelming experience in bad weather as the waves boil within.
The loneliness of this stretch of coast make it an excellent place to see seals and a variety of sea birds including gulls, fulmars, shags, cormorants, choughs, buzzards, kestrels and ravens.
There’s also an Iron Age hill fort, Castell Treriffith, to the south of Pwll-y-Wrach.
