Pembrokeshire is home of the only coastal national park in Britain. The National Park trail winds through 185 miles of coastal scenery, with 35,000 feet of ascents and descents greeting brave visitors. Naturally, this walk is split into sections so you can choose the area that appeals to you the most.
Beautiful seaside villages are a staple diet of the Pembrokeshire coast, which provides a view of Wales across the centuries. Along the way, you can see Iron Age forts and islands steeped in Viking history such as Skokholm and Skomer, which are now better known for their bird watching and wild flowers. Ramsay Island is another wonderful location to spot seabirds.
Blue Flag Beaches
Pembrokeshire is famous for its beautiful beaches, with many holding Blue Flag status. Saundersfoot is ideal for families, with bars and restaurants flanking its golden sands. If you're feeling more adventurous, why not go dinghy sailing? For a less mainstream but equally beautiful beach, you can head to Barafundle Beach for golden sand and clear waters.
If you are interested in taking the kids out to stretch their legs, the Folly Farm Adventure Park and Zoo will keep them busy all day long. You can visit the exotic animals at the zoo and see the only giraffes in Wales. If the weather is unfavourable, there is a large indoor play area to keep smiles on their faces.
Another fun resort for all the family is Tenby. From the coastal path, you will be able to see the lovely port in the distance. From here you can head down to the resort itself, where you can enjoy the luxurious North Beach.
For a historic day out head to Pembroke Castle where you can enjoy a variety of events including Dragon Days, where baby dragons visit the castle, and Living History Days, where re-enactment groups take over.
