We love Easter in Pembrokeshire. With coast path walks, egg hunts on the beach, and quality time with loved ones, it’s a magical time on the coast. Here are some of the best things to do in Pembrokeshire this Easter!
Have an Easter Egg Hunt on the beach
Nothing says Easter like an Easter Egg Hunt, with children and ever so slightly competitive adults running here and there, cheering with joy when they find those all-important eggs! With so many beaches on offer around the St Davids Peninsula, you can take your pick of them to have yours! We recommend a corner of Whitesands, with chips all round from Whitesands Beach House afterwards!
For the ultimate Easter experience that’s heavy on cuteness, head to Folly Farm. As well as being a chance to get up close to these adorable animals, kids will learn about farming, make up milk bottles and receive a cuddly toy.
Take in the spring wildlife from the Pembrokeshire Coast Path
Pembrokeshire Coast Path in spring is simply stunning. The sea pinks are in bloom, the coconutty smell of gorse wafts and birds call from their nests. Take a walk of any length, at any time of day along the path and you will see something incredible at every turn, even if it’s simply the blues and greens of the sea beneath.
Hit The Climbing Wall at WILD LAKES
If the weather isn’t playing ball, Wild Lakes has an indoor climbing wall for people of all ages to enjoy. If you want to up the adrenaline factor, why not have a go at some wake boarding? Refuel afterwards with their Tipi Dining.
Take part in a Children’s Activity Day at St Davids Bishops Palace
The Bishops Palace stands next to St Davids Cathedral, and is a beautiful place to visit at any time of year. This Easter, from April 7th – 11th, it’s home to Children’s Activity Days, with various trails and crafts taking place. Afterwards, pop into the Cathedral to take a look at an exhibition of Pembrokeshire Craft Makers.
Indulge in local goodies
If you can’t indulge in the sweeter things at Easter, when can you? With plenty of artisan chocolatiers and ice cream shops in and around St Davids, you’re spoiled for choice! Stop in for ice cream at Pointz Castle or The Bench, and pick up delicious souveniers by Dilly’s from Chapel Chocolates!
It’s all going on at Scolton Manor from the 1st – 16th April every day from 11am – 4pm! With an Easter Egg Trail, Springtime Crafts, and the chance to make your own Chocolate Easter Nest in Edies Tea Room.
This is a truly wonderful experience for all the family! Enjoy a large space to walk and sit to watch the wallabies frolic and Joeys hop in and out of their Mums’ pouches. These are very friendly animals, so you may even get a chance to stroke and feed them.
Head to ORIEL Y PARC
The tourist information centre and gallery at the top of St Davids is the place to find out all about events in St Davids over Easter. This year they have lots going on!
Be sure to pay a visit to Pilgrims Cafe next door for lunch afterwards!
Carew Castle’s Easter events includes Horrid Histories, a chance to learn history that you won’t be taught in class! This is included with normal admission from 3rd – 14th April. There’s also an Egg Hunt from the 2nd – 17th April for £2 per child – find all the eggs hidden around the castle to win an Easter treat!
Take a boat trip around Ramsey Island
Experience the magnificent Pembrokeshire coast from the sea with a trip around one of its most fascinating islands. Boats launch from the old lifeboat station at St Justinians, and knowledgable guides speak with passion about Ramsey Sound, Island, and the surrounding seascape. Some of the best wildlife spotting is done from these boats, so it’s well worth it! Pop into Falcon Boats in St Davids to book.
This recreated Iron Age Fort is an incredible place to have fun while learning about how our ancestors lived. Enjoy a whole host of Prehistoric activities and explore the Iron Age this Easter!
Follow the bees
Dr Beynon’s Bug Farm, just outside St Davids, is a wonderful place to visit and is open at weekends over Easter. Get up close with the creepy crawlies and have fun with the whole family. Make sure to pick up a Spotters Guide to the Pollinator Trail – a community-wide project to raise awareness of the importance of pollinating insects while allowing visitors to experience the local area in a new way.
Go on a Rockpool Safari
As well as thrilling adventures like coasteering and climbing, TYF Adventure offers a Rockpool Safari, designed to show kids the joy of exploring Pembrokeshire’s natural pools. While children will love it, it’s suitable for all ages, and adults can learn a lot too!
Visit Pembroke Castle
Learn some unique skills and have loads of fun at Pembroke Castle. They’ve got lots going on!
Head to Llys Y Fran
There’s truly something for everyone at Llys Y Fran, including the furrier members of the family! Enjoy the Dog Agility Area, connecting with nature on walks around the lake, and other activities like cycling.
