The small cove of Aber-west (above) lies just below the headland of Dinas Fawr on the north side of St Brides Bay. It has a shore of low-tide sand backed by a very steep bank of rocks and thorny scrub and is NOT easily accessible. I have included it here because these websites : / / / / / / have all copied mis-information from each other and wrongly claim this beach is accessible. Some even say it has a "gently sloping grassy hill to the rear"! Recently another site which has little interest in telling the truth and has obviously never been there - ( claims it's renowned for its vibrant beach scene and has access for disabled people!

Immediately west of Aber-west and connected to it by a short low-tide sea cave is the similar cove of Porth y Bwch. Even with a rope, access from the coast path would be difficult. The only way to reach these beaches is by paddleboard or kayak from nearby Solva.
