The St Davids Peninsula is such a romantic destination at this time of year, with windswept beaches, cosy pubs, stunning coastal views and picturesque cottages. February is when we celebrate Valentines Day, but should romance be for just one day? We’re making the whole of February a month of spending quality time with the one you love and sharing new experiences! So, here are our top tips to make sure your holiday to St Davids Peninsula is full of romance.
Visit the Blue Lagoon
Nestled just around the corner from Abereiddy Beach, the Blue Lagoon is a truly stunning sight. Deep blue waters, sheer cliffs and a churning sea beyond, this is a place of peace and wonder. A walk here with a flask of something lovely is sure to start your romantic break the right way.
Wine and Dine
As well as plenty of natural beauty, St Davids has loads of places to eat and drink to suit your preferences and budget. From the small plates menu and local gins at St Davids Gin & Kitchen and cocktails and fine dining at Blas, to an Angry Dog burger and a couple of pints over a game of scrabble at The Sloop. Whatever floats your boat, St Davids has got it!
Share an adventure at TYF
Nothing brings a couple together like a new experience, especially when there’s a hefty dose of adrenalin involved! TYF Adventure has been taking visitors on adventures around the peninsula for over 30 years, and are experts at getting the balance of fun and fear exactly right! Whether it’s coasteering, kayaking or climbing you’ll love every second and leave with some brilliant memories.
Relax at Menevia Spa
Once the adrenaline rush has subsided, relax and unwind with treatments at the gorgeous Menevia Spa in St Davids. A haven of tranquillity, a visit to this small spa will leave you feeling like you’re floating on air!
Climb Carn Llidi at sunrise
The view from the summit of Carn Llidi is breathtaking at any time of the day, but at first light on a still morning, you will feel like the only two people in the world. Take some croissants and a flask of coffee and enjoy the view.
Eat Fish & Chips from The Shed on Porthgain Harbour
It is possible to come to the coast and not have fish and chips… but why would you?? Our favourite way to eat the beautifully fresh fish and perfect chips from The Shed is looking out to sea from Porthgain’s Harbour Wall.
Walk to Pointz Castle
From Solva Harbour, get your walking boots on and make your way along the coast path, taking in the stunning panoramic views. You’ll reach Pointz Castle, a pebble beach that is only accessible by foot or water. In February we can almost guarantee it’ll be just the two of you, and if you’re feeling adventurous a fire and a couple of tea bags is all you need. If that isn’t your style, make your way up to Pointz Castle Ice Cream for coffee and their delicious homemade ice cream!
Enjoy a cosy Sunday Roast
St Davids is surrounded by fantastic places serving exquisite Sunday lunches with local meat, imaginative vegetarian and vegan options and all the trimmings. Find out the best places for a Sunday roast in and around St Davids here!
