The picturesque city of St David’s makes a great base for exploring the surrounding coast. On St David’s peninsula, you will find Whitesands Beach: a wide expanse of vast white sand and one of the best beaches for surfing in the country.
To the south of St David’s visit Solva Harbour, a great location to launch your kayak or embark on a coastal path walk. To the north of St David’s is Porthgain, a small coastal hamlet and home to the Sloop Inn, one of the most popular pubs in Pembrokeshire, and a great place to tuck into some fresh fish and a cold drink after a long day. You’ll also find a number of independent art galleries to explore, showcasing the work of Pembrokeshire’s local artists and craftspeople.
If you haven’t already seen enough flora and fauna on your trip to Pembrokeshire, you can pay a visit to the Welsh Wildlife Centre in Cardigan. A great place for adults and children alike, the centre offers an adventure play area, bird-watching hides and a Glasshouse cafe serving local food and stunning views over the wildlife reserve.
Wherever you decide to visit in Wales, you’ll find it hard not to want to return for more. From the stunning coastline to the mountainous terrain and architectural wonders, this country is full of charms that could easily take years to explore.
