Pembrokeshire is famed for its stunning coastline, which can be explored by taking to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. The path tracks the cliff edge and offers views of sweeping bays, hidden coves, tiny islands and a variety of marine life, including dolphins, seals and huge numbers of sea birds.
Southern Pembrokeshire is home to the National Trust owned Stackpole Estate, an area which includes Barafundle Bay, one of the best beaches in Wales, a beautiful stretch of coastline, many walking trails and the tiny, cliff-side St Govan’s chapel.
Further north is the vast sweep of St Bride’s Bay; a stunning collection of high cliffs, rocky outcrops and long stretches of fine beach, including the impressive Marloes Sands. At the northern end of St Bride’s Bay, St David’s Peninsula is home to some wonderful beaches, including popular Whitesands bay, some excellent coast and country walks as well as the perfect ‘minature city’ of St Davids. More of a good sized village, St Davids contains a large, striking cathedral (giving it its ‘city’ status) and an impressive fourteenth century Bishops’ palace.
