Let’s boast about the Pembrokeshire Coast
Wherever you are in Pembrokeshire, you’re never more than 15 miles from soft golden sands, soaring cliff tops and salty sea air. There’s nowhere better to relax on a quiet beach, watch seals and dolphins play in the surf, take a boat trip or gaze at sunsets over sparkling seas.
Tenby, Manorbier and Broad Haven are some of our favourite beaches to the South, or you can head a little further West to discover the untamed beauty of St Brides Bay. And our 186-mile coast path has been voted one of the best walking routes on the planet.
With spectacular coastal views, award-winning beaches, sleepy coastal villages and wild islands to explore, you’re guaranteed a seaside holiday to remember.
An land steeped in myth and legend; Pembrokeshire is home to some of the UK’s most important historic sites. The nearby castles of Carew, Picton and the imposing ruins at Pembroke, birthplace of Henry VII, are well worth a visit, as are the impressive St Davids Cathedral and Bishop’s Palace.
Venture North onto the windswept moorland of the ancient Preseli Hills (where Stonehenge’s famous blue stones originated) and you’ll find mystical stone circles linked to the legend of King Arthur and Neolithic burial chambers rumoured to be the lair of mythical beasts and mischievous Welsh fairies.
If you love the great outdoors, Pembrokeshire is the perfect place to visit. It’s a popular destination for watersport enthusiasts – Freshwater West, Newgale and Whitesands offer some of the best surfing in the UK and you can also try sailing, kayaking, diving, paddleboarding and more. And if leaping off cliffs into crashing waves is your cup of tea, our northern shores are the home of coasteering.
Further inland you’ll find miles of mountain tracks, shady woodland paths and riverside trails to explore on horseback, mountain bike or on foot. You can always start with the Blackpool Mill circular walk right on our doorstep.
And if you’re a fan of endurance sports, why not visit us in September for the Ironman Wales triathlon? The course starts and ends in nearby Tenby, but the Angel is the perfect spot to cheer competitors on as they race up Narberth High Street during the bike phase.
