NEWGALE: A  2 minute walk across the road from the campsite is Newgale Beach, famed for being one of the longest sandy beaches in the UK and for its surfing. At low tide, it is an awesome sight, wet suits and surfing equipment can be hired in the surf shop adjacent to the Duke Of Edinburgh Pub.

WHITE SANDS: This is also another good surfing beach on the outskirts of St David’s.

SOLVA: There is a lovely coastal walk of 5.5 miles to Solva from Newgale. A bus back Monday to Saturday is optional. Solva is a quaint village with a harbour, several pubs, coffee shops and gift shops.

ST. DAVID’S: St David's is a city and a community with a cathedral in Pembrokeshire, Wales, lying on the River Alun. It is the final resting place of Saint David, Wales's patron saint, and named after him. St David’s is the United Kingdom's smallest city in terms of population and urban area. Pop around the back to The Refectory you’ll find a beautiful, calming space that’s designed to give you a bit of time for contemplation. The city itself boasts shops, cafes and pubs together with a well-established tourism office.

TENBY:  This popular town has beautiful beaches and lots of shops and restaurants to choose from. The individually painted terraced seaside houses are extremely picturesque.

BROAD HAVEN & LITTLE HAVEN: These beaches can be accessed along the coastal road. Broad Haven is slightly more commercial than Little Haven which is more scenic and quainter.


These are one of the jewels of Pembrokeshire if not the UK and to see them at low tide is breath taking. They are quite isolated and you have to walk a short distance to get to them from the car park.

TRAETH LLYFN beach is between PORTHGAIN & ABEREIDDY. At Abereiddy there is the “Blue Lagoon” which is an amazing blue pool of water. At Porthgain there is a great pub called The Sloop and a fish and a gourmet fish and chip shop called The Shed which makes its own tartar sauce, scrummy! You can easily walk to all three locations within an hour.

ABERMAWR and ABERBACH are two nice pebble beaches if you want something small but quiet.


If you like walking there is no finer walk that at PWLL DERI or STACKPOLE as the views are spectacular and there is a hidden church built into the cliff face. You can walk right round to STRUMBLE HEAD LIGHT HOUSE in one of the most isolated parts of the Pembrokeshire Coast and if you walk down to the viewpoints looking down at the small craggy beaches you will occasionally see groups of seals. You can also look down at where the last invasion of the British mainland took place in the 17th century.


If you fancy seeing some sights inland, here are a few choices. Nevern is an old church out near Newport that has a famed 6th century Celtic cross as well as “the bleeding tree” which bleeds red sap and has an old legend attached to it. Over the same way you have Pentre ifan, a classic example of a Neolithic burial chamber (Cromlech). Nearby is a recreation of an iron age fort Castell Henllys, which does have an entry charge. Just up the road again you have Cenarth waterfalls and Cilgerran. There is a castle with stunning views as well as an old standing stone in the graveyard with Ogham inscriptions.
