Pembrokeshire has so much to offer, from quiet beaches to fun parks. There's so much to see and do - a few ideas are given below.


At Little Haven you are only a short distance from the magical Skomer Island which is home to many seabirds and possibly the largest colony of manx shearwaters in the world. Puffins nest in burrows on the cliff-top and wander across the paths right up to your feet. Make sure you have plenty of batteries in your cameras - you'll take lots of photos of these comical birds.


Enjoy your lunch on the cliff-top and watch the dolphins, seals and common porpoises, feeding on fish in the swirling waters below. If you're lucky you may even catch sight of a basking shark. Spring or early summer is the best time to see the wonderful display of flowers including bluebells, sea campion, red campion, thrift and heather. This is also the best time to see the puffins as this is when they bring sand eels back to their young.

 

There are numerous other beaches in the area including St Bride's, Whitesands, Newport, Marloes, Freshwater West Broadhaven South, Tenby and Saundersfoot. Surfing and windsurfing are popular activities, especially at Freshwater West.


If you're a scuba diver the area has many wrecks and islands to explore. There are several dive operators in the area including West Wales Divers in Broad Haven.   If you fancy the experience of horse riding through the surf along the beaches then the local riding stables are only fifteen minutes away. 


If you like castles and history, then you'll be spoilt for choice, with Pembroke Castle, St David's Cathedral, Pentre Ifan, prehistoric burial ground.  Carew Castle is where you will find the tallest Celtic Cross in Wales and take a stroll around the mill pond to the French Tidal Mill.


Major attractions for families can be found at Oakwood, Folly Farm, Manor House Wildlife Park and Heatherton to name but a few.


If you fancy a walk away from the sea, then there is the wonderfully scenic and oak wooded Gwaun Valley, with its blanket of bluebells in the spring, the open landscape of the Preseli Hills from where bluestones were transported to help construct Stonehenge, and countless other walks along rivers, estuaries, through woods and little valleys in a continuously varying rural landscape.


If you're travelling to Pembrokeshire along the M4 why not drop into the National Botanic Gardens of Wales near Carmarthen or take a slight detour to the historical Aberglasney Gardens near Llandeilo only a few miles off the M4.
