Pembrokeshire Coastal Path

Pembrokeshire is the most south-westerly County in Wales and is flanked on three sides by the sea.

Pentre Ifan Cromlech

It is home to the Pembrokeshire National Park and also the Pembrokeshire Coast Path which spans some 180 miles of coastline from St' Dogmaels in the north to Amroth in the south.

A designated area of outstanding natural beauty, the Pembrokeshire National Park is the only truly coastal national park in the UK.

Preseli Hills north Pembrokeshire

Pembrokeshire has long been a tourist destination with Tenby ,the City of St Davids and Newport being amongst the most highly sought out summer destinations in Wales. There are many other equally interesting areas to visit including the bluestones area in the north of Pembrokeshire , namely the Preseli Hills. Not to be confused with the Bluestones National Park Resort which has opened up in the south of Pembrokeshire.

Hidden away in the Preseli Hills are traditional welsh cottages and pretty villages, all nestling below the craggy outcrops and alongside the moors that make the Preseli Hills so interesting. Venture up on to the hills and you will find remains of ancient civilisations who left their mark by creating stone circles, cromlechs and other standing stone monuments.

North Pembrokeshire is an area steeped in history and from an early age has signs of occupation by humans.

There are umpteen sites scattered across its entirety, from neolithic burial chambers on Carningli Mountain to the Cathedral at St Davids, there is history here to suit all interests.
Many of the sites are open to the public and most are free to visit.

St David's Cathederal

The north Pembrokeshire coastline has also seen many changes over the years, from industrial slate mines in the cliffs to being scenes for films like Moby Dick and Under Milk Wood. There are stories and myths about Pirates sailing these waters and of caves that led to old houses which were used for hiding the contraband.
Today the coastline is an adventure and activity playground with sailing, kayaking, surfing, windsurfing, coasteering and other activities aplenty.

Tenby, south Pembrokeshire

South Pembrokeshire has some of the best bucket and spade beaches available, but they do get very busy during peak summer time.

The landscape is a lot softer than the north of the County and has some beautiful areas to visit such as Bosherston Lily Ponds and Barafundle Beach.



Whitesands Beach

West Pembrokeshire is the place to be if you enjoy evenings on the beach watching the sun setting into the Irish Sea. Surfing and other beach sports are also popular in this part of the County.

Day trips and sightseeing tours of Pembrokeshire's islands - Skomer, Skokholm and Ramsey are all available from the west coast of Pembrokeshire and the principal town of Haverfordwest is a short drive inland.

Haverfordwest has a castle, ruined abbey plus many shops, cafe's, restaurants and pubs to explore. There is also a swimming pool, leisure center, cinema and indoor carting all within the towns boundaries.
