‘There’s something for everyone’ is a phrase often used, and never has it been truer than in Pembrokeshire. Here are just 9 of the hundreds of reasons to fall in love with this fantastic corner of West Wales.
From quiet pebble-strewn coves only accessible by coast path or water to expansive swathes of golden sand, Pembrokeshire’s beaches are among the best in the world. Sling a rucksack full of sandwiches on your back and set off to explore, or pile as many buckets, spades, and swimming costumes as will fit into the car and off you go!
Pembrokeshire Coast Path
186 miles of winding coast path line the edge of Pembrokeshire. A walk along a stretch of the path can take in beautiful wildlife, stunning views out to sea, seemingly undiscovered coves and seaside villages that often contain a pub or two where you can enjoy a cold pint after a stunning walk.
Food & Drink
Pembrokeshire’s foodie scene is diverse, and while you’ll find plenty of fish & chips and pub food, there’s loads more to discover. Street vendors call out from stalls in the summer, while restaurants offer fine dining and the best local meat and seafood all year round!
Whether the kids need entertaining on a grey day or you fancy a change from the beach, there are loads of all-weather attractions you’ll all enjoy. Some close to St Davids and others further afield and perfect for a day trip.
Castles & Heritage
Absorb Pembrokeshire’s rich history and learn something new with a visit to one of the county’s many castles and historical sites. Whether you experience the life of an Iron-Age Celt or wander around a Norman castle, there’s loads of great days out that kids and big kids will love!
If you like your holidays with a splash of adrenaline, Pembrokeshire’s got it in buckets! There’s coasteering, kayaking, surfing, climbing, paddle boarding, and that’s just a few! Discover the coast from a fresh perspective, and have a ridiculous amount of fun while you do it!
If you’re staying on the St Davids Peninsula, it’s very tempting to not explore much further as there’s so much here! But if you do fancy experiencing a proper seaside town with loads to love, an hour’s drive takes you to Tenby. Fantastic shopping, great places to eat and lovely beaches – it’s well worth it for a day trip!
Puffins at Skomer
Puffins can be ‘seen’ all over Pembrokeshire – on tea towels, coasters and calendars that is! The best place to see them for real is Skomer Island. Catch the boat from Martin’s Haven and experience the trip of a lifetime.
We might be biased, but we reckon we’ve saved the best for last! A laid back city bursting with character. From its nearby beaches, fantastic food scene, independent shops and of course the wonderful Cathedral, it’s the tiny city with loads to offer.
