Located on the westerly fringes of the UK, you’ll find the picturesque county of Pembrokeshire. With breathtaking views and charm in abundance, this special part of Wales is a tranquil haven. Rated the second best coastline in the world by National Geographic, you’ll have 186 miles of striking coastline and over 50 beaches to choose from.
Protected by Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, the landscape is home to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. Perfect for walks and hikes, you can explore trails which twist and turn through coves, harbours, beaches and bustling towns and villages. You can expect truly incredible views of rugged cliff tops and unspoilt beaches. With 35,000 feet of ascents and descents, it is not for the faint of heart but shorter sections of the walk can be enjoyed by all ages and abilities.
The sea laps onto the shores of Pembrokeshire on three sides so when it comes to beaches, you’ll have your pick of the very best. Our favourites include Freshwater East and West, Saundersfoot and Barafundle Bay. Tenby has five incredible beaches but you can read more about that in our separate Tenby Area Guide.
As well as a stunning coastline, Pembrokeshire is also home to adventure parks, castles, boat trips, wildlife, galleries and museums. Ideal for all of the family, there is something for everyone.
Head to Skomer Island which is just 15 minutes from the mainland and you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to a different world. Thriving with lots of different wildlife, you can see puffins, seal pups, shearwater chicks and guillemots during your visit.
